Since downloading Windows 10 Google Earth freezes after I have been on it for about five minutes. I've tried updating it but the same happens. Any ideas? 


Also my desktop calculator appears in the apps list but refuses to work because there is a problem with the app?

I'm not real good with this stuff, but try:

-  Uninstall Google Earth, reboot, then install a fresh copy


For Calculator:


Then please run the following DISM commands to see if there's any problems with the system (from an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt).  Press Enter after each one:
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

FYI - I have repaired systems using the last command even though problems weren't found with the first 2 - so I suggest running them all.

From this article: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh824869.aspx

You can also run sfc.exe /scannow from an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt to check for further corruption.


If that doesn't work, try a RESET with the Keep My Files option.

This is a bit drastic, but at least it will preserve your files.

My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
