Hi quickdraw, I may not have made my problem clear enough. I can't uninstall GE as it does not show as being installed, does not show in All Programs menu, Programs & Features, there is just no sign of it anywhere, so I cant use it's uninstaller. It was just a fluke I found it at c:\user\xxx\app data\local\temp\msige61\program files\google\google earth\client\google earth\ (which as you say is a funny place for it to be)& when I clicked on application I found I had a working GE.

Ok, in that case. Run a search for Google. Delete the files you find assocated with Google. Check registry to make sure any trace is deleted there. HKEY_CURRENT_USER, click the plus symbol to expand. Click on the plus next to SOFTWARE. Look for Google in the list. Right-click and delete. Go back to the top. Click on the minus symbol next to HKEY_CURRENT_USSER to close. Now, click on the plus symbol next to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE to expand. Follow the same process here as you just did with HKEY_CURRENT_USER. Now try to reinstall Google Earth.
