    I have windows vista... I can get into some games and not others...example..
    Texas Holdem freezes when I click on play and enter a room...same as some
    bingo rooms. If I sit and watch a player during a game I can enter when the
    game is over by clicking on the sit button, but I cannot just go into a room
    that is waiting to play. The computer just freezes. I have Sun

  2. Pogo has disclaimers about Windows Vista located in various places of their
    site. Simply put, Windows Vista has issues and Pogo is looking into them.
    However, on Mozilla Firefox, Pogo behaves as intended.

    Your best bet would be to use Firefox for now , along with the latest flash
    plugin and java runtime.

    Pogo will announce on their site (on the front page) when they have fixed
    pogo on windows vista.

    Please tell how you have your computer configured to play Pogo games> I have been searching blogs for months trying to find out, ready to give up on Pogo forever.

    One of the below should help:

    or Call the EA tech support line
    or Use Firefox with latest Java

    Sorry about that. My dog hit my arm and caused me to click on post.
    What I wanted to say is that when I got Vista I could play all Pogo games.
    Gradually they all became inoperative. Now none of them work. I have gone to
    ea tech support, tried Mozilla Firefox, updated Java, tried using MS Java,
    and nothing works. I have AOL and ea said it was one of their security
    updates, but AOL says it isnt. I am stumped. Am thinking about downgrading my
    computer to XP

    if this is a new computer that came installed with Vista, be careful a lot
    of new systems have hardware like sound cards that do not have Windows XP
    drivers, in other words you won't get sound in Windows XP. Check your
    hardware manufacturer before you downgrade.

    Yeah, good luck with AOL, I used to use them back when they were on v2.0 of
    their client, ran great then, but the last 10 years, it's pretty hit or

    It was hard because EA and AOL were in bed together, so testing those games
    in all the AOL clients/browsers was a nightmare. I don't know how AOL does
    it, the whole process of connecting to AOL's system seems so cumbersome.

    Try uninstalling Java from your system, uninstall Firefox, and I don't know
    how you connect to AOL, but if it's via DSL, see if there's a way to
    uninstall the AOL client and still connect.

    Clean your hard drive, remove the firefox folder from Program Files so all
    the old files are gone, delete the Java folder for Sun, goto
    C:\Users\<Username>\AppData\Mozilla\Firefox and delete those files (Gonna
    loose your bookmarks/plugin settings)

    Reinstall Firefox, run and goto http://java.sun.com for latest Java, reboot
    as necessary, try Pogo again.

    Best of luck to you, Pogo seems to be having Java problems with Vista,
    probably just need to stick with it til they get their act fixed, or try
    some other site.

    An alternative browser would be Safari, http://www.apple.com/safari that
    might work, who knows.

    Good luck,

    I took your advice and am able to play Pogo Games through Mozilla Firefox so
    I am using that as my internet Browser. I hope there will be a fix soon.

    Thank you

    Hi, Let me give u a little history on how I came to be able to play Pog
    games on Windows Vista. I received a new pc for Christmas and it ha
    Windows Vista on it. I spent 2 days and almost nights trying to loa
    Pogo games. I was ready to take the pc back! Then, I read in a foru
    that u have to use Internet Explorer to play the games. First, I cleare
    my Java cache-Java-setting-delete temp files. Then I went to Interne
    Explorer-not yahoo or google. Then www.pogo.com. And to my surprise th
    games are loading!!!! I had been trying to load them on my ISP but i
    had to many popups!! I hope this helps. Just my experience Good Luc

    Hi Everyone,
    I went from XP Pro to Vista because it came installed on this computer.
    I don`t have any problems playing the games just that in some ie: Tri
    Peaks I can see the
    chat box. I have tried changing the settings and nothing seems to work.
    It is either to big or to small. Has anyone else had this problem and if
    so how did you fix it.
    Thank you in advance

    I have Mozilla/Firefox on Vista, and a few Pogo games work with it; but now every game I download from Pogo freezes once the load screen loads, clicking does zero. What might be the problem?
