If you still have IE6 then it has become a security hole and it's no longer accepted anywhere- you should update immediately to IE8, the latest version. 
After you do that you must perform a full update of Windows.

My Gateway 504 GR won't play WSOP or most Reel Slot games. How can i play newer games on my pc? 2002 version Windows XP Home, 915 chipset, Intel proc. 4 cpu 3.00GHZ 512mb 3000mhz. Thanks


Hello there,
The image below indicates the minimum and recommended system requirements of WSOP most probably you will be able to play the game. The problem might be your Adobe Flash Player or your Internet Explorer version. If your Windows Xp Home is genuine you might consider updating or download a Mozilla Firefox.
The links for Adobe and Firefox are located below the image.

Flash Player
Mozilla Browser
From what I know Windows XP by default have an Internet Explorer v.6.0 that is why you need to update your Windows. by the way you have to download Flash player if you have Internet Explorer v.7. if this does not work try the step below
1. Download the Mozilla Firefox browser and install setup 5.0.1exe. 2. Download Flash Player it will automatically update your Flash.

Hopefully this information helps.
Thank you for using FixYa.

I have windows home edition service pack 1 and i need to update my browser? i keep getting debug errors


You will need to update XP to Service Pack 3. Just Google "XP Service Pack 3" and follow instructions, OR go to http://www.microsoft.com/update - this will also update your browser to Internet Explorer 8.

You can install Firefox with no special updates, but it would be better to update to SP3 anyway.

Won't print anything on line


hi , this problem usually occurs when a user is having internet explorer 8 and hp smart web printing is not installed or if you are using windows xp then the service pack is not updated
so the best solution would be to use internet explorer 7 and install hp smart web printing from cd
or to down load firefox and print through it
if you have windows xp then you can update the service pack 3
