Hi Forum,

Could anyone help me ?
This programme is putting my PC into instability every time I try to access the
street view aspect of same. It produces a "Google Earth has stopped working"
notification every time I try.
I am seriously considering uninstalling it though I would miss it's facilities. I believe there is an Open GL mode now available. Would this be preferable ?
Please help. I have installed the very latest edition of this programme.

You could try posting on the Google Earth forums as Sue has said above. They should have more of an idea of what they're talking about.

Before you do this though, could you try downloading an older version of Google Earth? I've linked version 5.2.1.1588 below. See if it crashes in the older version too.

That worked for me on my old computer. I didn't have enough RAM and I don't think my video card was big enough, so installing an older version did it.
