Is Frontier your internet service provider? If so, please see the following;

Currently, we are seeing issues reported by many users who have Frontier as their Internet Service Provider and are seeing the error below.

We are offering a voluntary workaround for users who are unable to access the game through Frontier's DNS servers. A suggested way to solve this issue is to use OpenDNS servers. This solution was reported to have worked for a user with this issue. Please note: We are merely suggesting this suggestion, as it has been passed to us, but do not take responsibility for failure of this solution. We would also recommend this only for users who consider themselves to be knowledgeable about computer networking.

We are also investigating further and hope to have a more simple solution in the future.



How to change Windows 7/Vista to use OpenDNS servers:

1. Open your control panel.

2. Open up Network and Internet and go to the Network and Sharing Center.

4. This will bring up a list of adapters present on your computer. Most people will have a Local Area Connection while laptop users will add a Wireless Network Connection and possibly a Bluetooth Network Connection...go ahead and right click on Local Area Connection and click on Properties.

NOTE: These steps do not change if you are modifying the Wireless Network Connection instead

5. If prompted by UAC, click on Yes.
6. Highlight Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) and click on properties.

In the Preferred DNS server boxes enter this sequence: 208.67.222.222

In the Alternate DNS server boxes enter this sequence: 208.67.220.220

8. Check the validate settings upon exit (Optional) check box, click OK, and then Close to finish. (See screenshot above)

9. Windows will check your settings (if you checked the option above) and you will be finished! Now start surfing to feel the effects of a quicker and more secure browsing experience!
How to change Windows XP DNS settings:
Sometimes you may want to override the default DNS (Domain Name Server) settings on your computer so you can specify which DNS server is used, or which IP address should be used for a particular domain. There are two ways to do this: Specify the DNS and map IP addresses.
(1) Specify the DNS to be Used To set your DNS, you need to find the Internet Protocol window.
For Users on a Dial-up Connection:

Go to My Computer>Dialup Networking.

Right-click your internet connection and select Properties.

A window will open - click the Server Types tab. Click TCP/IP Settings.
For All Other Users:

Go to Control Panel>Network Connections and select your local network.

Click Properties, then select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP).

Click Properties.
You will see a window like the one below - this is the Internet Protocol window. Select "Use the following DNS server addresses" and enter the desired DNS server(s) in the space(s) provided.pic7.jpg

Note: To add more DNS servers, click Advanced then the DNS tab.
(2) Map IP Addresses This method allows you to create settings for individual domains without altering your main DNS preferences. This is useful if you don't have access to a DNS or if you want to specify the location of a single domain without interfering with any of your other online activities.
Open the following file in a plain text editor such as Notepad:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
The file looks like the one below. At the end of the file (in this case, under the localhost entry), enter the IP and domain you wish to specify. When your browser attempts to access a domain it refers to this file first - if the domain is found here then the specified IP address will be used. If the domain is not found here, then the normal DNS server (as specified above) will beI'm locking up in family - pic8.jpgr />

(Note that for the XP one above, they can use the same OpenDNS servers
(208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220) as for the Windows 7 link above)

Family feud problem connecting to server


Update your Adobe flash player software to the latest version:
http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

If that doesn't fix it you might have some viruses and malware.

Start your PC and press F8 several times until the boot menu comes up. Then select "Safe Mode with Networking". Now get some or ALL of the FREE programs below.

Download, Install and Run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware:
http://majorgeeks.com/download.php?det=5756
When Installing choose the non-pro version.

Download, Unzip, Install and Run TDSSKiller:
http://majorgeeks.com/Kaspersky_TDSSKiller_d6895.html

Download, Install and Run Super Anti-Spyware:
http://majorgeeks.com/SUPERAntiSpyware_d5116.html

If you have an outdated Anti-virus program then Download, Install and Run Avira Anti-Virus:
http://majorgeeks.com/Avira_AntiVir_Personal_-_FREE_Antivirus_d955.html
Make sure to select ALL of the "threat categories" when you install or configure Avira...

You should be in pretty good shape if you run and install all of these programs.

Why is adobe flash player crashing everyday?


Quite often you may have to do the removal and restart your PC. Once you have done that, check your registry to make sure you have removed any traces of flashplayer. Before you edit your registry, make sure you back it up first. Should something go awry, you can go back and recover to the back up registry file. Also make sure you do one product removal at a time and check that the reinstall removed all pieces.

Keep getting out of sync warnings on fb game Farmville& cityville


Good Day Dilles!

It is an internet connection issues. The page is loading too slow. It is better to disable your Firewall settings.

I do recommend you download and install the latest Adobe Flash Player. If you want to be more satisfy playing Facebook games, I do recommend you use Mozilla Firefox when you access your Facebook account.

To download:
Adobe Flash Player, go to http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/
Mozilla Firefox, go to http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/new/

Party bingo page part loads but cant see rooms just ther colour and it says wate for party bingo page to load but never does has been this way for a week tried ecery thing


Hi, the game loading partially means that the Adobe Flash Player has not been updated or the browser is not supporting it to load the game.

In order to play the Party Bingo.

Please download and install the latest free browser Mozilla Firefox 4 from the below link:

http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/fx/

Then, download and install the latest version of the Adobe Flash Player from the below link:

http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

Please close all the windows of Mozilla Firefox before installing Adobe Flash Player, open the Mozilla Firefox after installing the Adobe Flash Player. Now the
Party Bingo should work!

Everytime I play farmville it freezes up


There are two possible reasons why farmville game freezes in your computer when attempting to load it.

First is your internet browser. You can tell if the internet browser is the one causing it. How? When you type facebook.com in your browser, observe if it takes too long before it loads the Facebook log in page. If it does, then change your browser. Mozilla Firefox is highly recommended. Google chrome perform good too for Facebook site.

Secondly is Flash player. it is the one that manage the loading of games with 3d and animation. So if facebook.com loads very fast in your internet browser, what you will need to do is upgrade the Adobe Flash player that is installed in your system. the latest version would be best.

Please rate. Thanks

Adobe flashplayer will not download to my firefox browser. Some youtube videos will not load because of this and songs won´t play.


Make sure firefox is the latest version.
Go to tools / add ons / pluggins and see if flash is there, if not pop over to Adobe and download the latest version.
If you have a failed/damaged installation, go to add/remove programs and uninstall flash if you can, then use a registry cleaning program, i use the registry cleaner built into CC Cleaner, and run the registry cleaner, you should now be able to download and install flash

Hi!
that always happen when the web browser you are using is not that good in loading facebook site.. And it will be even harder loading facebook games if your browser is not using the latest version of Adobe flash player (a software for viewing animation, video watching and games application that is used for web browsing.

how to speed up facebook and game loading?

My suggestion is you use the latest version of Mozilla Firefox as your browser, it is the best so far for loading facebook account. Download also the latest version of Adobe Flash Player and install it to your computer.

After doing this, you will see the difference, and will enjoy fully the games of facebook.

here's the link for mozilla firefox and adobe flash player.. just click it, and save the file, once finished downloading..start installing
1. Firefox - http://www.mozilla.com/products/download.html?product=firefox-3.6.3&os=win&lang=en-US

2. Flash Player - http://fpdownload.adobe.com/get/flashplayer/current/install_flash_player_ax.exe

Hope this help you... Enjoy facebook.
