Welcome aboard

Upload the .png in ConvertICO.com, it will convert it into .ico online. Download it, save it in a real location, which will not be deleted.

Then right click on the desktop icon of google earth > select properties > click the change icon button . It will direct you to the location where the original icon of google earth is stored. Click the browse button, and browse to the location where you have saved the converted icon. Select it. ok, apply , ok .

Let us know if it worked or not.
