Problems getting help from Google Earth

by normmacder - 11/5/07 1:34 PM

Ihave had Google Earth since it first appeared and enjoyed it until now.
I hadn't used it for some months, but it was fine then.
Now when I try to use it the window comes up as it always did but then the window gets covered with umpteen grids which cover the whole window
and make it useless. Google doesn't seem to get what I mean and perhaps this is the wrong forum to bring it up on, but perhaps someone could enlighten me. Has Google changed it's "free" policy ?
BTW I have Amd with tons of HD and memory with Athlone 64x2 Dual and the machine is clean. The OS is XP with SP2.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
