    can you install an older version of Google Earth. A number of children here complain as the version we have installed is old without it.

    I have been able to disable flight simulator by deleting an .xml file
    from xml folder of GE target directory.

    Deny permissions for students is more elegant. That way you can still play it but they cant.
