Windows 7 and Google Earth?

Hi.

I recently installed Google Earth on Windows 7 and the Zoom (+ -) is unavailable (can't see it). Has anyone else run into this problem?

Thank you in advance and your help would be greatly appreciated.

Regards,

I have Google Earth 5.0 running on Win7 7048 and all features, including zoom, work correctly.

works fine here on bld7057 too (upgraded from 7048), both sets of 'plus'/'minus' work here too.
Google Earth was installed on 7048, then I updated to 7057 without reinstalling Google Earth.

maybe check keyboard layout is set right to your localisation and also check no other app is using them two keys as hotkeys...

Thanks for the replies. It seems that the graphics card is causing the issue.
