Some "free" games can cause major problems. Read the fine print can put allot of necessary programs on your computer spy ware, virus, tracking programs, and programs there are not made for your operating system, and freezes up your computer. To answer your question hit ALT-CTRL-DELETE for Windows Task Manager to stop Applications.

Let me know if this helps and please rate me mysleuth

This is a new computer I have now and been a member a long time why cant I get my games with out being asked to join pogo club I already am a member


This is from the EULA agreement for POGO. This may be your issue.

Technical Protection Measures. For software purchased from pogo.com, each computer must be authorized before you can play the purchased game. Authorization occurs after authentication and license validation by iWin. The first end user of this License may authorize up to three machines on which s/he may play the offline features of this game at any one time. Go to for instructions regarding how to activate your game on more than one machine. When you install the Software on a machine, the machine is automatically authorized (provided you have authorizations available). You may contact iWin's Customer Support at for additional authorizations.

If your machine has not been authorized, you may be having issues, or Pogo may be seeing your new machine as a fourth one. You should be able to get Pogo to remedy this by contacting them and letting them know your situation. They can enable your machine and give you the tech support you need to get back up and running on your new rig.

The screen freezes when I try to get a Lotto game for daily puzzle..pogo


If you are having freezes, or hangups, or general slowness, it could be because of malware.
WildTangent, Pogo, iWin, and many other "free games" websites have proven to be attack vectors for malware. They also will profile you and sell information about you to 3rd parties, so they can deliver targeted ads. That's how they make money, by compromising your privacy. If you don't mind this, then continue using these so-called "free games" sites. I recommend you uninstall anything to do with these sites, and then act as follows...
A. If your computer will boot and you can operate it ok...
Download and install Malwarebytes and Superantispyware (Note: If you can't do the download on your machine, do it on a friend's, put them on a thumb drive, and install them from it). Then scan your computer with each program, and quarantine anything found.
B. If your computer won't boot, or can't operate properly after boot...
Tap F8 when you are booting, select "Safe Mode With Networking". Download and install Malwarebytes and Superantispyware (Note: If you can't do the download on your machine, do it on a friend's, put them on a thumb drive, and install them from it). Then scan your computer with each program, and quarantine anything found.
C. If this process finds malware, to keep stuff like that from coming back, I recommend you get the paid version of Malwarebytes.
D. I also recommend you get the free Adblock Plus, to avoid so many popups on the web.
Good luck.

Well, i was playing World of Warcraft today, and randomly everything started lagging pretty hard, so i restarted my cpu, and now i can't even been on for 5 minutes without the computer freezing up...


if you keep reset on to your CPU this will affect to your Hard Drive. When your online games WOW very lag then do not let that online game on play to your Computer. You know or maybe your Computer are not enough to run this game. Check all the plug in play device which are capable to run this game. Your VGA Compatibility e.i AGP or PCI-E, Memory speed e.i DD1, DD2 & DDR3 and mostly Games Accelerator Programs.
Hope this tip might help you.
Good luck!

During online game play-screen freezes after playing a game or two?TW2007


When you say the screen freezes, do you mean the entire computer freeze, forcing you to reboot it? Or did the game freeze, and you're able to ALT+TAB or CTRL+ALT+DELETE your way out of the program?
If the whole computer froze, it's likely to be a heat-related problem on your CPU or GPU. You can check your temperature using several utilities, such as Speedfan or Everest, or very likely in your BIOS as well. Different CPUs have different overheating temperatures, but usually they shouldn't be above 80 degrees C at extreme load times.
If it's above that, try cleaning your fan using a can of compressed air (You can buy that at any computer shop), moving your cables inside your computer for better air flow, or (as a last resort) open the side of your computer case.
If it's only the game that froze, and not the whole computer, you could check your graphics drivers, or check for any patches for the game itself.
