2 Things off the top of my head you could try is if your using internet explorer 8 click on the compatibility button for the pogo site or else try the site using the Firefox browser.

I think you are using IE8 , if it is correct , Please uninstall it using following link

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/957700

and if it is IE7 , please reset your Ie 7 by clicking on start>run and type inetcpl.cpl and click on ok.

Once you do that you will get internet options and go to advance tab and click reset.

Hope this help.
Cheers!!!

When i play my game i cant see the whole screen how do i fix it?


If you are playing pogo games ?

Pogo.com is an online gaming website where you can play well-known games such as Monopoly, Battleship and Scrabble -- along with scores of other board, word, puzzle and arcade games -- in a Web browser window. The games on Pogo are programmed using Adobe Flash, and are viewed in a small box inside the browser. If your computer has a large display, you may find the games difficult to see because of the of the game box. Although you cannot independently adjust the of the Pogo game box, there are several tricks that you can use to make games appear larger on your screen. Magnify the browser window. In Internet Explorer 9, click the gear-shaped button in the upper-right corner of the screen, and click "Zoom" and "Zoom In." Browse in full screen mode. In Internet Explorer 9, press the "F11" key to enter this mode, and press "F11" again to leave it. Lower the screen resolution. In Windows 7, minimize the browser, right-click the desktop and select "Screen Resolution." Click the drop-down menu next to "Resolution," and select a lower resolution than the one currently displayed. Because a lower resolution uses less pixels to display the information on the screen, this has the effect of making the Pogo game box larger. Remember to change the resolution back when you are done playing. Disable the address and status bars in Internet Explorer 9 if a portion of the game window is cut off. Click the gear-shaped button, and then click "Internet Options." Click the "Security" tab, then click the "Custom Level" button. Click the "Enable" radio button next to "Allow websites to open windows without address or status bars," then click "OK" twice. Close and re-open your Pogo game window. Press the "F4" key. Some Pogo games enter full-screen mode when this key is pressed, but many do not. Hope this helps.

I play games on pogo recently i had to redo my


Hi:
here is my advice : Just go to www.microsoft.com and download internet explorer again and install it , then reboot your system . I'm sure that this will solve the problem . any way , why don't you try other internet communication softwares like ( firefox or google chrome) those both are great also . I advice you to have more than one internet communication software . I already have three just in case if one of them is corrupted . I have ( Internet explorer and firefox and google chrome ) . just try the idea and you'll be satisfied with the result .

If that didn't help then try to check system for errors . such as registry errors .
good luck .

if none of those didn't work , then repair the the system or reinstall it again , i recommend repairing .


rate if useful please !

Java Problem


your java will most likely need to be updated or it is disabled in the internet explorer. try using FIREFOX instead of internet explorer. this is faster more secure and will allow java to run.

Club pogo closes when i try and play


Hello,

It sounds like a internet browser problem almost sounds like a java problem,

Go to java.com and click the blue Free Java Download button. This will allow you to update your java clients (pogo users Java)

Also go to www.flash.com and update your flash, if you see a movie play when you go to flash.com you do not need to update. If you don't click, install


If the above does not work , try downloading an updated web browser either IE, Firefox or Chrome - all the links are provided below. Once you update your browser try again.

You can also Download IE 8 from http://www.microsoft.com/windows/Internet-explorer/worldwide-sites.aspx

Or Firefox web browser from mozilla.org

Chrome; http://www.google.com/chrome

Thank You

Club pogo closes when i try and play


hi,
Might be it needed some Active X controls to download and install on your browser and your security settings are HIGH.

however, if you are using IE to open, try again with Mozilla firefox.
Please make sure that you have latest Flash player installed for browsers.

Thanks.

Security issues


http://games.aol.com/help/technical-issues

Games Do Not Work Unable to Play Games. For most game errors there are a couple of steps available that will alleviate the trouble. If you are having trouble you should:
  1. Clear Your Browsers Cache On AOL
  2. Clear Your Browsers Cache on Internet Explorer
  3. Clear Your Java Cache
  4. Browser/Service Error when playing Pogo Games
  5. After you've done the above Once you've performed all the steps detailed above. Close all your browsers. Once all your browsers have been closed, restart them and go back to the game you were trying to play.
  6. More Technical Assistance
Seeing A Red X Seeing A Red X Some members will see a Red X where a game should be running. This happens when a small piece of software provided by the game publisher is not installed. These little programs are called Active X controls. When you see a Red X you need to do the following to get the game running:
1) Close down your browsers (and the AOL client)

2) Open Windows Explorer and go to C:\WINDOWS\Downloaded Program Files

3) Find all non-Java labeled files

4) Right-click it and select "Remove" for each

5) Open up Internet Explorer or AOL and try to run the game again.

Slingo Help Slingo Help 1) Make SURE you have the latest version of Java by clicking here. and installing Java (the games need Java to run properly)

2) You will see more of the screen if you use Internet Explorer or Firefox instead of the AOL browser. Just sign onto AOL, minimize the AOL running but leave it running in the background and then open Internet Explorer and go to Slingo

3) If you cannot see the entire game screen, adjust your screen size (the resolution) to 1024x768. Then you should see the game AND the chat.

4)You can play in any state and any room by clicking on the regional tabs inside the game lobby.

5) You can play in ANY of the game rooms regardless of what state you are from by clicking on the “Play” button in the lobby. Pop-Up Blockers Pop-Up Blockers Some of our games open as a pop up. If you click on one of our games at it is blocked it may be due to a pop-up blocker. You can make sure that AOL games are never blocked by adding AOL.com and Games.com to your pop-up blockers safe list:
