Frank Taylor started the Google Earth Blog in July, 2005 shortly after Google Earth was first released. He has worked with 3D computer graphics and VR for many years and was very impressed with this exciting product. Frank completed a 5.5 year circumnavigation of the earth by sailboat in June 2015 which you can read about at Tahina Expedition, and is a licensed pilot, backpacker, diver, and photographer.
I had no problems with version 4.2, but since I have downloaded 4.3 beta there is a white ring blocking most of the whole earth view. Any fast movements, such as a fly-over, result in a freeze-up. I have an Nvidia 7300 LE graphics card and 2 gigs of ram.
I downloaded the free version of google earth, and the path tool (to determine the distance) worked perfectly for two days, then on the third day after about one minute after I logged on to google earth, my computer froze. I tried this over 15 times, and each time it froze my computer when I began using the path tool. I unistalled and reinstalled Google earth and it is still freezing up my entire computer, so I have to manually shut it down. The control alt delete option does not work to get out of google earth.Has anyone encountered this problem, and knows how to fix it? It only happens when I try to use google earththanks 2b1af7f3a8
