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. (
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.

Club pogo closes when i try and play

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.

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".
