Hi all,

I've had this recent problem when I try starting google earth up. It has only happened in the last few weeks.
When I click on the icon, this message comes up:

"Windows cannot find the specified device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item".

I've tried looking on loads of other forums on how to resolve this but no luck. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated as I use google earth for my work.

I'm using Windows vista by the way.

Have you tried Right-Clicking the Icon and Run As Administrator? Let us know if that works.

Yes I've tried that and nothing changes. Still the same message as before when I try to start her up.

Right-click "the icon", select Properties, then check the path to the file. Is it correct? (Double-check and see in Windows Explorer).

Path to file seems to be fine. Still nothing.

This is ridiculous.
