    Firefox, but i've also tried IE 7, IE 8 Beta, and am now back to IE 6. I've updated my drivers. Have Nvidia GeForce Ti4200

    I appreciate the time you are taking on this.

    Uninstalled Spy Sweeper. Didn't help.

    Can't completely turn off my firewall. I click off and it says it's off, but when I open security center it says it's on.


  • Trudy Caswell Oct 06, 2008

    When you said to check my firewall I didn't know that my router had a firewall. After getting a new computer and still having the same problems, I was about to pull my hair out. I realized the only thing the two computers had in common was the connection, but still didn't get it. Finally I stumbled across something that made me check and discovered the router firewall.

    It's Westell, and my ISP is centurytel (DSL). Westell's site has, right on the first page, big as the bailout, "Firewall". Of course, as soon as I turned it off my troubles were solved.

    Thanks for trying to help me. If I'd known what you were talking about I wouldn't have blown up my old computer trying stupid stuff.

    I just hope this helps somebody else some time.

    So far from what you tell me you shouldn't be having any problems.  What kind of antivirus software do you have?  You might try temporarily disabling it and then see if you can get a big fish game to run.


  • jkgstl May 11, 2010

    Okay, your computer should be able to handle Java okay, what web browser do you use to surf the internet?


  • jkgstl May 11, 2010

    Right click on My Computer with your mouse and then click properties.

    Java tends to be a resource hog, how much RAM(memory) do you have installed?

Try to play pogo games


Please follow these instrucions to clean up your Java installation.
There is a program called JavaRa that will remove all the old Java versions from your computer. Go here to read about it, then it is a free download from here.
Extract the .zip file to your desktop or create a My Programs\JavaRa folder and send it there. Close your browser and run the JavaRa.exe file and choose 'remove older versions.' When done, it will show you a log file of the Java versions found on your computer and removed. Close that.
Now open JavaRa again if it is not still there behind the log file. Choose "Search for updates" and then "Update using SunJava's website" A browser window should open at the Java home page. (http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index.jsp)
Scroll down to the Java SE Runtime Environment (JRE) and choose download. Choose windows from the options, check the license, then choose offline or online installation and click the orange download bar.
Save the file to your desktop or folder, then close your browsers, and click on the file to install Java.
This will give you the most recent version of Java available, which should work seamlessly with Pogo applications.
To check, go to this page and reactivate your Pogo account. Then try to play games.
If your account is properly activated, and you're still having problems, please see this page.
If you want help with these last settings, write back and let us know the exact error message you get from Pogo, and we'll help you to adjust your browser settings to get you in.
I don't see any reason why you shouldn't be able to play with Windows xp. I'm sure you can get it sorted out...

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

Java problem using pogo games


Try flushing your Java cache.

Start > Control Panel > Java > Temporary Internet Files (Settings) > Delete Files.

You might even try UNchecking "Keep Temporary Files on My Computer".
