SOURCE: I havve been unable to access farmville for a week


I would also check to make sure that you are using the latest version of java.
you can check on this site to make sure your version is current, and get an updated version if need be.

If your java is current, then it sounds like it may be a cache issue.
i would first download and install CCleaner., install and run it.

Try going to the farmville site.
If you cant get there using the url, try typing in your browser address bar;

if you can get to the site that way, then it is a stale or corrupt DNS entry in your DNS cache. to clear that out,
need to go to a command prompt. 
In XP, go to start menu, run, then type in CMD. 
When the dos box comes up, type in     ipconfig /flushdns.

if you are using vista or windows 7, then go to the start menu, search all programs and files, and then type in   cmd  and then hit the enter key.
When the dos box comes up, type in     ipconfig /flushdns. and hit the enter key.

Try the site again.
If it doesnt load, then next thing would be to try pinging the site.
Back in the same DOS box, type in,     ping then hit enter

you will see a message with this as the first line,
Pinging [] with 32 bytes of data:
there will be several other lines underneath too, but if you recieve the message that the host is unreachable, then your computer cant find the farmville site.

If you arent using a router or hub, skip this step
If you are using a router or hub, i would try plugging your network cable directly into your DSL or cable modem. Then try accessing the site.
If you can access this way then there is a rule of some sort in your router that is blocking the site, and your router would need to be reconfigured.

If that doesnt work, next thing i would check would be your firewall settings. This site may be blocked. Without knowing what firewall you are using, it would be a very lengthy post to walk you through the process of checking each one.
Also if you have any url filters, popup blockers or antispyware programs, this site may have become blacklisted. Some of the adservers on the free sites do serve out javascripts that are detected as malicious or dangerous,and some are, but depending on what your AV/firewall product is an exploit may or may not have been caught and it could lead to blacklisting this site.
If you need help with checking your firewall configuration, please comment back in here and i can help you further
hope this helps and if i have helped you please dont forget to rate.

SOURCE: adobe website problem/flash player problems

I think this is due to cookies. Google Chrome options - 1. Click on "Tools" (Spanner in the right corner under the close page X) 2. Click on "options" (11th option down) 3. Click "under the bonnet" 4. Click "content settings" 5. Keep on the cookies section. Make sure it's on "allow local data......" Click "Exceptions" 6. Type in the facebook ULR 7. Do the same (click exceptions) for all of the others BUT NOT POP UPS!!! If this still doesn't work do the same but instead of facebooks ULR do the games ULR aswell. e.g. facebook/games<(it won't be that so don't copy that(just copy the exact facebook games ULR and make sure it's correct).
Hope I helped Dr Reed

Support zynga com

This is a possible symptom of an out of date plug-in. You should try updating your flash player via as a lot if not all Facebook games require the newest flash version be installed. If that doesn't work, you should then contact support via click your game; then on right hand side there's a red "?Get Help" click on this then either mail them or use chat.
