    Maybe you have not got malwarebytes set to website blocking.

    You might be right. I usually just run scans every now and then.

    Didn't take long to narrow it down to my house, but the street view has a google copyright symbol on it, and the date on the copyright is out. It says 2011, but the car in the driveway I got rid of in very early 2010.

    if you use the buttons you can drive right along the street and you can swap sides of road with the compass
    and to change from ariel view just hit the box on right and it changes from ariel to street

    On the scroll bar on the left of the aerial image is a zoom slider. At the top of the zoom slider is a logo of a person.
    Click on and drag that icon to the road.
    Unless you're somewhere obscure that hasn't been driven yet by the google cars, you should have a street view come up.
    At first the aerial view is in the top corner, but can be resized

    I tried my Mum's address, which is in the country in New Zealand, and on a lane that as far as I know didn't even have a name when I was growing up. It went straight there and even gave me a street view which surprised me.

    But I got more or less identical results typing it into Google Earth, maybe a little slower and at lower resolution.

    The pictures they're using are old! The front of my place looks totally different now.

    For much more recent (independant from google) aerial views try this one - www.nearmap.com

    It's certainly faster for me than google maps but, as for some others, it gives the house over the road yet when I type that address in, it indicates location not found - interesting watching the process too. Thanks for sharing this.

    If you like hi-res versions, go to the nearmap website and look up your address.
    Only aerial views, but they're redone every month or so, and you can scroll the slider bar along the top of the page and watch how your place has changed over time.
    You have to either become a free member, or sign in as a non-commercial guest the first time you go there, but it's all free for personal use, and much much higher resolution, but primarily only does major areas, so won't be likely to have country towns, and none of the bush, outback, National Parks, etc generally.
