Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Google earth When I initialize google earth I always have a red X in a rectangle on the top LH corner of the picture; I have contacted several Computer technicians about my problem, but they all say that they are not specialized in this field. I have paid a $20.- US subscription fee to google earth hoping that my problem would go away, but, unfortunately, it is still there. Could please somebody tell me what I should do to fix this ?? Regards Helmut

    Would like to copy my pictures onto a CD

    I guess you have a CD writer/Combo or DVD writer on your computer.
    Assuming you have Windows XP, I'll answer the question. (If you have Win 7 still you may be able to figure out how to do this after reading these instructions).
    Select the pictures you want to copy. Right-click on one of them and select Send To --> (Your CD Writer) from menu. (If you have pictures in several locations you can go to each folder and do this).
    You will see a text balloon appearing on bottom right corner saying 'You have files waiting to be written to CD'. Click on this balloon or open the CD writer from 'My Computer'.
    Click 'Write these files to CD' from the left. Insert a blank CD and proceed.

    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.

    Error Code 0x80004005

    The issue is with google earth, is a fault in the software that comes up with certain windows installation.

    I report from Google groups:

    It sounds like Google Pack might be having an issue with installing
    Google Earth. You can try downloading Google Earth directly at

    If you're unable to download anything with Google Pack, you may want
    to try looking in the awesome Google Pack Help Center for more
    information. You can find the Google Pack Help Center at"

    Also do the following, install it manually from

    Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs > Add Program from CD/Floppy Diskette
