All I can say is, thanks for being confused.
I have hated the 4.3.something ver of googleearth since I first 
installed it. Based on your investigation, I realized that ver 4.3 isn't 
supposed to work with my Athlon XP 2600+ and didn't look back in getting 
all the ver 4.3 stuff replaced with 4.2.0205.5730.

Amazingly, I did not find the older version on their site when I 
initially installed 4.3.
