    Bought a laptop with Vista Home Premium, I can't play pogo.com games, loads
    then several seconds later it gives me a error message. Something like
    software running is preventing the game from downloading, ad blocker,
    firewall, antibirus, or other Internet Security. Even the "Geek Squad"
    couldn't fix it. Can someone please help?

    Download Firefox browser and/or latest version of Java from Sun.

    I have the latest version of Java from Sun, going to download Firefox now.
    I'am keeping my fingers crossed.

    Let us know how it goes. You can get IE7 working with pogo, it's just easier
    at this stage to try Firefox. It is a good idea to have a second browser
    installed anyway just in case your default gets corrupted (and you can't
    download any fixes...)

    FYI, I can run Pogo games in Safari Beta 3.0.2 for Windows, so if Firefox
    fails, try Safari.

    Think this is still a Java problem, if that's the case then any browser you
    use has the potential for this failure. EA may have a fix if you check their
    support.ea.com site.

    Problem is not with EA/Pogo, it's just the way Vista comes preconfigured.
    Basically you need the latest Java, and force IE7 to use it.
