google earth hangs on splash screen
Posted on 2009-04-20
I have a fairly new (approx 2 months old) Dell Vostro 420 at work, and just yesterday I tried running Google Earth, and it promptly hung on the splash screen, with no further CPU activity. When I used it a couple of weeks ago, it was fine.
I don't know if it's related, but my Microsoft Update is getting stuck on the "Checking for the latest updates for your computer..." page, and not progressing further, and I am required to kill it using Process Explorer. It's been like that the last 3 or 4 days at least, and I also did not automatically get the latest round of updates from Microsoft (hence why I was trying to manually update).
