ArcGIS Earth Performance Issues

I searched through the other posts but didn't see anyone having performance issues with ArcGIS Earth.  Like many others, I am delving in to ArcGIS Earth due to the changes in Google Earth Pro.


I am having some serious performance issues after opening ArcGIS Earth.  The initial screen will load completely black, and then the program will freeze for up to 5 minutes.  Then a view of the earth will appear and freeze again with a view of the African continent. After another few minutes the earth view will rotate to the Atlantic Ocean.


From what I can tell, ArcGIS Earth is hogging **** near all of my available RAM. (See attached capture)  At the time I captured the Task Manager screen the only things that I had open were Outlook, IE, Windows Explorer and ArcGIS Earth.


After the initial install I was able to load a shapefile, but since then it is having the issues described above.  How can I improve the performance of ArcGIS Earth?
