I've had success using the spyware removal and uninstall list on this site and thought someone on here might be able to help me again.

The other day I could not open Firefox or Internet Explorer. I would click on them, it looked like they were going to open, but they never did. If I booted my computer in safe mode then both worked just fine. I ran scans using Norton 360 and Malwarebytes and both results turned up nothing. After a few days of this problem both FF and IE started working seemingly normal again.

Now, I'm missing a program, Google Earth, that I know should be there. I tried to reinstall it, but nothing happened. In my control panel it still lists Google Earth as a program that is on my computer. I just tried to remove it and was told that I need to be logged in as an administrator in order to remove it. There is only one profile on my computer and I am the admin. So, I tried logging off and logging back in and got the same message. This is the only other program that I've noticed a problem with, but it is frustrating and kind of scary.

Any help is appreciated.
