    glad to know, im not the only one. but like everyone else,
    my SS is not working. in fact all the games
    are "unavailable at this time". it used to work fine, i
    didn't change anything. my coworkers have no problems at
    all, so it's probably not a firewall issue. is it a
    problem with me or with the site? ive also fixed all my
    security tabs and everything and unchecked boxes. help!

    games are available here:

    with them and 100's of other games.

    thanks for the reply, but i tried that. but it still
    doesnt work. b/c when i click on the game, it tried to
    select a contact from my list, and then it's the same
    thing all over again. is there another way?

  4. Hi Carol,

    There was a problem on our servers that might be causing this. To clear up the problem you'll need
    to clear your cache in Internet Explorer and reboot your computer.

    To clear your cache in IE 6:
    - Open Tools, Internet Options
    - In the "Temporary Internet files" group click the Delete Files button
    - In the Delete Files dialog box, check the "Delete all offline content" box and click OK

    Now reboot the machine and the problem should be solved.

    Hi i know you didn't try this but i ve the same problem,
    had it at home and some other places aparently its
    something related to the link
    http://appdirectory.messenger.msn.com/AppDirectory/Directo
    ry.aspx
    where it tries to enter an url from your region.

    In my case im at dominican Republic and maybe it's not
    working beacuse it's trying to get routed to another site.

    Anyway I solved the problem in 90% of the cases except 1
    user which doesn't appear to work, any other user work
    except his user...

    What I did (and i don't know if microsoft allow it) i
    went to http://games.mess.be and downloaded their msn
    games add in which also has an idicator if it's working
    or not. After that I went to other launchs menu and
    appears 2 msn games menu.

    choose 1 and it should appear all msn games. working and
    running.

    It's still working and the extra games don't hurt.

    Im not responsable for any damages caused for that
    program, but it works good.

    i think msn is buggy
