having recently had to format my hd and reinstall windows 7 64 bit sp1 I have downloaded google earth, the problem is that when I open google earth I get as far as 'loading my places, kml, including enabled overlay' after about one minute of nothing happening google earth gives the 'not responding message' I did not have any problems with a previous installation, I have a son in America who travels all over the country in his job and I used to view the locations he visited, it would be nice to do it again. please help and advise me, all help and advice appreciated.

Could have been a dodgy download, I would download and install again without removing original installation.

If that does not work, do same again but this time fully uninstall old installation.

thanks Nontek but non of that worked, what I have found is http://www.oldapps.com/google_earth.php this is links to previous versions and version 6.2 from 26 Jan 2012 has worked, unfortunately it tells e it cannot connect to the server to update

thanks dr yes, I have followed each step, I have the latest drivers, tried to open the program in Direct X mode but got same error message; tried to run in OpenGL mode but it tells me that my Nvidia display driver files from incompatible (different) versions of the driver have been detected. I have updated my drivers without success, maybe I should forget google earth, is there an alternative program?
