long story short, im an idiot (if you haven't figured that out by now your new to the forum and welcome to betaarchive ;)). so anyways i'm in 7 and anytime i open something that requires 3d hardware acceleration i freeze (freeze not bsod and no hitting the start key and waiting ten minutes doesn't work) so its pretty annoying now because i'm addicted to google earth.

anyways one time i booted into safe mode knowing i would have to use software rendering instead of hardware and it ran :) but when i go and boot normally it freezes :(.

so is there any way i can force google earth or all apps to run using software rendering (yes i know its slow but my graphics card isn't all that much faster for these tasks). also i cant uninstall or disable because when i do i get lines all over my monitor.

and no im not gonna give up 7 for google earth i love windows 7 over xp (not good enough for vista barely makes it on current 7)

edit: i was planning on putting this in the software section but i guess it fits here too...
