Suggest thread this thread then do following steps:
1) try to uninstall GE in Add/Remove Programs list
2) download GE from advanced setup
  From this page uncheck 'Allow Google Earth to automatically install recommended updates'
  http://earth.google.com/intl/en/download-earth-advanced.html

tried the above ?

Download and run the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301 maybe worth a try.
