I have Win XP Home edition. Ever since I downloaded SP3, Google Earth and some other graphic intensive programs don't display properly. For example, normally after the splash, a globe appears and you can see the continents. Now, it only shows the outline of the globe, no continents. When I try to zoom into one of my saved places, I get unusual patterns on the monitor. I am sorry I cannot be more explicit. If you need a screen shot to point me to a fix, I can post one later. I would appreciate any suggestions or explanations/pointers/directives that anyone could provide.
