Google Earth has always worked well for me, but lately it hangs for about 10 seconds when I click on one of the pictures. It even says in the application bar "(Not Responding)" and then returns. This also happens if I click on a link inside google earth such as for a hotel which brings up a website inside google earth, it hangs for about 10 seconds and then brings up the site.
It also happens when I click on a Street View icon.
It seems to happen any time Google earth has to go fetch something.
Does anyone know how I get Google Earth to stop hanging like this?
