SOURCE: Google Earth disappeared after updating Adobe Reader 9

Try to do a system restore, this should help you to get the application back. On the start search, type restore, select system restore, on the system restore screen choose the option which says select another restore point, hit next, choose the restore point when the system was working fine, hit next, let the computer go through the restore process. When computer restarts normally, you should be able to use the google earth.

SOURCE: Using Windows 7.(Lost Desktop Icon).

Click the mouse "down" onto the "nearby" icon, and then "drag" that icon to move it somewhere a few inches away. The "missing" icon may now become visible.

Or, if you have used "auto-arrange desktop icons", look everywhere on your desktop for the "new" location of the icon.

I have google chrome in my programmes but I lack a desktop icon which I want because google chrome is my web browser. I need a method to instal the desktop icon only.

If you are using Windows XP, you may follow the following:
  • Look for chrome.exe. In my case, it is located at "C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\Application". Please change the USERNAME accordingly.
  • Right click on the chrome.exe and click "Send To->Desktop (create shortcut)".

How do I empty the cache on my computer to speed up the startup?.

There are 2 ways you can speed up the start up
Remove all the unused icons of the programmes from your task bar and the desktop by opening Task bar properties from the Start menuand clearing unwanted programmes Or Download CC Cleaner programme from Cnet/Downloads or going to their website. It is free and it cleans all the registry/caches/temporary internet files/and other files which you do not require. I have done the same. Every month I run this programme to speed up my computer.

Google Desktop will not start.

The shortcut on your desktop maybe the old one you said that you reinstalled the Google Desktop BUT you did not uninstall the first one. The Icon on your desktop still refers to the old installation when somewhere while you use that programm CCleaner it wipe Google Desktop. Delete the icon on your desktop and reinstall allow google to place the icon again on the desktop. I can tell you another way to go and get it but that takes another explanation.
