Windows 7: Google Earth Disappeared from program list

Google Earth Disappeared from program list

Hi,

This is a bit weird, but I have had this problem twice now. Once during the Beta Win7 and now on my 7 HP. Google earth just decides to disappear from my program list in the start menu and searching it normally too sometimes is not that easy.

As a result, I now pin Google Earth by accessing it from my program files folder (which is still there).

Reinstalling and uninstalling does not work but the files are present in Program Files.

MS hates google so much to block out their products?

I wanted to download Google Earth, but do not think they officially support Windows 7 64 bit. If your ver. of Window 7 is 64 bit that may be part of the problem.

Google Earth disappearing faster than Atlantis?

I had no issues with it on the Windows 7 RC x64. Probably nothing a fresh install wouldn't fix.

me too

I too, am having probs with google earth. I download the 70 or so mb, but it does not show up on my program list. It shows up as a folder in my x86 program files, as a client file and a plugin file. It does not want to run at all.

I just upgraded with a legit Win7 from vista, which came on the new computer 3 months ago.

Google Earth works ok on 64-bit.

Are you using some sort of cleaning program like ccleaner?

Google Earth (GE)worked fine under Win7 64 but I downloaded Bing Earth & it wiped out Google Earth.

Bing Eath is worthless!!

I tried to reinstall GE, no luck. Uninstalled Bing Earth, reinstalled GE, no luck.

What is going on?

BTW How to I get rid of the windows messinger that pops up every time I boot up & is constantly in my face

I have always been a fan of MS. Way back to MS Basic before Windows. (I am 81)

Issues like this is starting to change my attitude towards MS.
