Google Earth only opens once after reboot and then won't again until next reboot eblashko 4/21/12 10:32 AM
Hi. I have a strange problem that began recently. For a long time, Google Earth was working perfectly without any problems. Now, it only opens once or twice after I reboot my computer (Windows), and then on subsequent attempts, fails to initialize, showing a box which reads:

Google Earth has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience. 

But when it does open after a reboot, it works fine with no problems until I close it and try to open it again. 

Any advice on what to do? 
Thanks!

Hi, I'd start by going throught the steps here: Resolving crashing and graphics issues on Windows machines. In particular, clearing your cache and removing your my places file (steps 1 and 7).
