Java problem using pogo games

Java seems to just connects to pogo games. I am not getting errors it just won't connect. I have installed the new Java program and have tested my computer to see if Java is working fine and it seems to be. I seem to have problems with Pogo games. I have tried the troubleshoot on help in pogo page to no remedy. To give it a nudge to connect I have to use my task manager and give firefox some help to connect. When I use windows explorer I have to use trusted site and manually keep clicking http://game3.pogo.com After a few minutes it seems to connect to the game but this is very frustrating. It's even worse using firefox. I hope I have explained my problem enough for you to understand. I have tried almost everything I can think of. It like a car won't start but tweak it and then it fires up after awhile

    Thanks for the help ricky but I already tried that to no advail. Its sad that I have to open task manager to give it a nudge. It seems like it not loading the Java. Anything else I could do? Could it be in my isp settings to unfreeze it?



    I hope somebody can help me. I just went out the other day and purchased system mechanic to see if that would help. I thought for sure it would. Nope.

    Lost in Canada someplace :)



    Thanks again

I did the check Java test through Pogo...all 3 boxes popped up saying everything was installed properly and working and to go play and have fun. Still I get the Java message and no game.

    I was able to play Pogo games in Firefox with no problems until recently, now when attempting the popup opens with no problem and appears to be loading. Unfortunately, it never gets past the appears to be loading stage.

    I received one error message referring Java, so I downloaded the latest version in case that was the issue, however still no resolution.

    I have tried the suggestion of flushing the Java cache and removing the check from "keep temporary files" to no avail.

    I have same problem, one day it was all working fine forever, and then it just quit working. No matter what site I go to using Java my browsers all close upon game load.

    It seems like Pogo, needs to fix their problem as I did everything as well. I did tests, checks, and removed temps, cache's everything and Booom nothing. Always closes. I also went to pogo Sun Java and everything is fine so what's up????

What version of Java do you have installed on your computer?
The newer versions of JAVA (post 1.7.0_14) have restrictive security and may be causing your game not to connect properly.

Go into JAVA management console

Start > Control Panel > Java > Security > Edit Site List > add the server for your pogo game

see if that helps

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".

I cant get on pogo to play my games i downloaded java


It's a ongoing issue with Pogo and Java. Java updates quite often due to security issues, Pogo has a hard time keeping current with Java. You didn't post your Windows version? 32 or 64bit? Try installing a older version of java, this is the 32bit version, it works with some of my clients Pogo issues: http://www.filehippo.com/download_jre_32/10808/

I get as far as showing the POGO homepage, which uses Java, but the games won't load


Install the latest version of Java.
Try it in mozilla firefox. If you are IE than make sure your java is enabled you are using the IE8 or later version.

I play pogo games and cannot enter a room..says error in java yet it is installed


Im not sure what browser you are using but what i would suggest is un-installing java, via the add and remove programs and then re-install java using this link and try playing your game on pogo, If however it still does not work i would also try downloading firefox web browser. I hope this helps you.

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.

Java problem using pogo games


This issue is caused by the security software on the computer. Most security software have features like AD blocking and Script blocking which causes this problem.
You can try turning off this feature in the security software. Alternatively there are couple of things that can be done.
For IE 6, goto tools manage add-ons and disable all the items except the ones which have the name Java or Flash or Sun Microsystems or Adobe.
For IE7, goto Tools - Advanced tab and click on the Reset button.
Or goto Tools – Programs tab – Click “Manage addons” and do the same as above.

Let me know if this helps
