    I've used Yahoo for many months to play the free online game named Cubis.
    Recently I can't access the online game and I've noticed a disclaimer at the
    top of the page that says Cubis is not fully certified for compatibility with
    Windows Vista. I would appreciate any help anyone might give me.

  2. About the only thing you can do it wait for Yahoo to make it fully
    compatible with Vista. It's all in their court right now.

    Have you tried manual compatibility? If it's web based, throw compatibility
    to the wind - it will work based on the rendering engine your browser uses,
    be it Firefox, IE, or whatnot - if it's downloadable, execute it with
    compatibility settings. Right click on it (for or after installation) or a
    link to it, goto Properties, Compatibility, Run this program in
    compatibility mode for (usually Windows XP SP2 should suffice), and then
    check Run as Administrator if the aforementioned doesn't work.
    If it still will not run, then you'll have to wait until Yahoo amends the
    issue.

    Vista compatibility is touchy, certain software claims to be Vista
    compatible and actually will not run, and vice versa - don't always trust
    cheap labels. ;)
