What you can do is to bring the computer back to time before installing XP Pro.
Go into Start - All Programs - Acessories - system Tools - system recovery and here choose according to the calender a piont/date before installing XP PRO.

The computer will be brought back timewise to a point/date of your choise.

Load google earth on my hard drive

Uninstall the program. Do you have a registry cleaner, no, then put Ccleaner in google and do a search.
It is a free one, and works ok for free. You uninstall the program,now run Ccleaner. now if it picks up
more then 100 problems, you have had a very slow PC, I bet you get around 500-1000.
Now go to google earth and download the new edition and install it. This should solve your problem.
Hope it works out good for you. Any other questions,just post back,everyone is more than happy to help you.

Windows XP Home Edition on HP Pavilion a367c

Are you able to successfully enter Safe Mode? Are you getting a brief blue screen before the computer restarts?

A possible solution (if you can't get into Safe Mode to further diagnose the issue) is to repair the Windows installation with a Windows XP Home CD. If you know someone with such a disk you can use that with the product key that should be on a sticker on the back of your computer. Otherwise, HP should be able to send you an XP CD since you have an authorized copy of Windows on your computer.
