Google Earth - just NOT working correctly??

Evenin' Chaps,

For some unknown reason Google Earth has decided not to work properly. Each time I open it, a message:

Google Earth could not contact the authentication server to activate your sesion. The application will continue to opetate but will only display data available locally (cache).

I've uninstalled and d/loaded the latest edition, the exact same this happens. The further I zoom in, the more blurry it becomes (like it was 5 years ago) What can I do about this please? Any ideas anyone?

Thanks

Run this Google test.

Hi rdave, I've tried this a number of times already, and results always return as OK. It's really getting on my nerves as I use GE a lot to research crop marks...

Does Google Maps work? Is it a firewall snag?

Hi WooLwell, Google maps DOES work, and it's ticked as exception in my firewall. I've no clue WHY it suddenly stopped working, the maps appear to be old maps too. Do you know what is the most stable version? This is the version I'm using - 6.2.2.6613

The maps are frequently old. Why don't use you use Google Maps - its the same imagery.

Interesting - as I was on 6.1 and told that no updates available but have just been to Google Earth site and downloaded and installed 6.2.2.6613.

Well, that's the same version I'm using ... I hope you don't start having probs too!!

What is your firewall? I think that you may have firewall snag see Google earth tutorial and scroll down to troubleshooting.

woolwell, I'm using the Vista firewall only, and it's ticked as exception. One strange thing though, when I run the test in IE9, it only returns 2 results, not 3 as shows on the GE tutorial page...

Can you make them trusted sites in IE9?
