Windows 7: Google Earth Disappeared from program list

your GE is still there, only you have to find it in your Program files. What I do is I pin icon to taskbar so even though it is gone in my start menu, I can access it from my taskbar.

i have the same problem a few times and here is the solution I found. Uninstall Google Earth and reinstall it but remember to uncheck the automatic update Google Earth box and all will be fine. No more disappearing act.

I'm not running any cleaner programs, just AVG free, and the complimentary Norton expired. Could there be driver updates or anything else I'm not told when I install the 7 upgrade.

I tried to install Google earth on the vista that came with the machine, and it didn't work then either.

Well, GE is working now. I have it pinned, even though I don't use it often. Having an icon on the startbar settles the problem.

This is a know issue with Google Earth. They are working on it.

It hasnt been erased from your system though. The shortcuts have just disappeared.

To get your Google Earth back do this:
Open a my Computer window.
Go to your C:\ Drive
Go to Program Files(x86)
Go to Google
Go to Google Earth
Go to client
RIGHT CLICK googleearth.exe and choose "Send To" from the first drop down menu
This will open a second drop down menu, chose "desktop (create shortcut)" from that menu.

This will place the shortcut back on your desktop.

Hope this helps!

I also can't run Google Earth on 64-bit Windows 7. I've downloaded it multiple times, it says it's downloaded, and then it doesn't appear in the program list.

Google earth has disappeared twice from my computer win 7 64. I noticed that when this happened I have gone to programs and features in control panel and uninstalled Google Chrome and Google Earth. Then when I ran the Google Earth installer the icon popped back to the desktop and it was again installed. Something with Google Chrome? I am not sure but this fixed me.

pin it to the taskbar, then if the icon and directory links dissapear, the icon on the taskbar will still work.
