Have you installed a software firewall on your PC?
Check your System Tray / Notification area for clues..

| Hi Again Jimmy,

| I hate to do a complete restore unless I absolutely have to. Thanks Pat

||||||| Hi Pat,
||||||| Online games are usually developed using Flash, Java, or Virtual Machine.
||||||| The most likely solution to a problem with an online game is to install, upgrade,
||||||| or reinstall the right one for the game site you're playing on.
||||||| A. For Zone.com games: Zone.com are converting most of their games for Flash
||||||| to avoid the conflicts between the Sun Java system and Microsoft's Virtual Machine.
||||||| Install Flash from: http://sdc.shockwave.com/shockwave/download/frameset.fhtml
||||||| B. Most other game sites still use Java. You can install Java and find more help
||||||| tips at this webpage: http://java.com/en/download/help/pogo.jsp
||||||| For problems with IE 7 and Lycos try the solutions on this webpage:
||||||| C. If the online game still won't load, or gives you errors, try these steps:
||||||| 1. Click START / Control Panel / Internet Options and click on the Advanced Tab.
||||||| 2. Below HTTP 1.1 is the Sun Java/ Microsoft VM section: Make sure all Java choices
||||||| are unchecked (especially JIT) and then press [OK]. You may be prompted to reboot.
||||||| 3. If you don't see a Microsoft VM section then download Microsoft Virtual Machine for:
||||||| Windows 98 / Me / NT / XP from: http://www.abxair.com/software/msjavx86.exe
||||||| 4. After you download Java, double-click the file to install it, reboot and then follow
||||||| the directions in Steps 1. and 2..to disable JIT compiler and other advanced options.
||||||| * Whenever you get a Java Virtual Machine Security Update from Windows Update, you
||||||| will have to follow Steps 1. and 2..to disable JIT compiler and other adv. options again.
||||||| 6. If the problem persists Adjust Your browser settings using this basic example:
||||||| 7. Try these suggestions for Zone's Java Games:
||||||| 8. Maybe it's a software conflict: Make certain that your Firewall or Antivirus program is
||||||| not configured to block Java Applets. Norton's products for example have that option.
||||||| Regardless, temporarily disable Startup programs one at a time, starting with Firewall,
||||||| Antivirus, AdBlockers, & Internet Accelerators using the method in this article:
||||||| or this utility: http://new.jtsoft2001.com/windows/startup.php
||||||| 9. If you have a Coffee Cup icon in your system tray (next to the time) you might have a
||||||| conflict between MS VM and Java: Uninstall Java using Control Panel / Remove Programs.
||||||| 10. Run a MS AntiSpyware Scan: www.microsoft.com/spyware
||||||| 11. Check the Help / Support section of the game site in question for Java topics relevant to
||||||| that site. There is usually an email or a (non Java) help chat available as well. :-)
