It sounds like you were tricked into downloading a malware infection, this will usually include a few trojans as well.

Please do not assume that because a website tells you you need something that it is true, or you will be getting lots of these kinds of infections.

Removing this infection is not something a novice can do you will need to take the machine to a professional.

Computer crash or something/ my husband and I have 2 computers we're both pogo customers/ but only my computer crashed I need to be reinstated because all I have is the option to sign up for Pogo and I...


The pogo account already exists at the back end server. It is not created on your computer, It is created with your computer no matter how many times your computer crashes the account remain on the server in the internet cloud. If you cannot access your account I suggest you make a contact to customer care for pogo.
Good Luck!

I am having trouble playing games on pogo. I just spent $64 upgrading Java and I still can't log on. They want me to buy something else. What can I do?


First thing to do is update your windows operating system. Click the Start button, click All Programs, and then then click Windows Update

The reason why Java will not load on Pogo is because your computer has a registry error. Click on the link below to download the free Abexo registry cleaner

http://download.cnet.com/Abexo-Free-Registry-Cleaner/3000-2094_4-10434887.html

After you download Abexo and scan your harddrive to remove the errors you will need to update your Java to Version 6 Update 20 . Click on this link below to update Java for free

http://java.com/en/

Now restart your computer and download the free Adobe flash player
http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

After you compete all of these steps, log into Pogo with the correct user name and password and start a new game.

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


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".
