    Anyone else experiencing crashes with GE 5.x? I downloaded it last week and it ran fine. Did various searches and it looks nice. Now when I run the app it crashes on the last search. I've deleted and reinstalled the app a number of times but still crashes. Weird part is it is retaining my last search and I can't find any preference file that it may be using.

    Anyone else seen this behavior or know of the preference file(s) to delete?

    Thanks, Joe

    Fixed it

    Using the console app I was able to see the reference to the actual plist files. Once I deleted them it runs fine again. The files I deleted were:

    com.google.GECommonSettings.plist
    com.google.GoogleEarthPlus.plist
    com.google.GoogleEarthPlugin.plist
