Slow boot up after google earth update

  Murghalador 16:11 PM 29 Mar 13

Hi, both of my computers are running XP SP3 and have Google earth installed. Both were working perfectly until an automatic update was made to google Earth a couple of days ago. Now when I try to start Earth I get a message saying DirectX 9.0c needs to be loaded. I have checked and it is loaded but Earth still refuses to run, also in the laptop hen trying to open Earth it crashes to a bluescreen. I run Spybot2 and MSessentials and neither have reported a virus. Can anyone help please. Coincidently (perhaps) both computers are now very slow to boot to the start menu.

I would be tempted to system restore them to a point before the GE update
