This error really happens even if Google Earth is properly installed and also running with the latest plug-in. Parsing errors like this one is really unavoidable and happens unexpectedly. A parsing error occurs when a program’s format of statement breaks the known rules of the programming language. There are times errors such as this will cause your computer to suddenly freeze.

But even if this happens, it can always be fixed by changing several files integrated with Google Earth. Open Windows Explorer then go to “C:Documents and Settings[username]Application DataGoogleGoogleEarth”. Locate “myplaces.kml” and “myplace.kml.backup” and then rename them. Verify Google Earth is not running. Still using Windows Explorer, go to “C:Documents and Settings[username]Local SettingsApplication DataGoogleGoogleEarth”.

Locate “dbCache.dat.index” and “dbCache.dat”. Delete both files. Next time you run and use Google Earth, uncheck Alternate Placenames in “Borders and Labels”.
