    NVIDIA 331.58 Driver Update kills Google Earth


    In WIN 7 (and WIN 8) the most recent NVIDIA video driver update 331.58 destroys the functionality of the Google Earth (GE) application as follows:

    I just installed 331.58 and immediately thereafter Google Earth no longer displays correctly (all other apps are fine). Using Open GL in GE Tools 3D View Options I get a black earth upon zooming in (cant see any sites). Using Direct X in GE Tools 3D View Options I get small green & blue blocks when I zoom in!
    I can get a temporary work around by going to GE Tools>Options>3D View Tab>Texture Colors and unchecking "compress", but that is a non-standard selection.

    Anyone have/ know what's the problem?

    Nvidias drivers have been just been terrible for a while now. Unless you really need the new version, rollback to the last known working set.
