Some one please help! Its driving me insane. Im sure its something simple. I am running vista, with mcafee virus protection on alltel wireless pc card. When I try to play the free games, I keep getting the message not connected to the internet. I have done everything suggusted by the automated message from Iwin and still nothing. I turned off my windows firewall. Deleted the google search bar (popups) and set Mcafee to allow everything from Iwin. Still didnt work. I thought it might be something to do with Mcafee so I went as far as deleting Mcafee and still nothing. Keep getting that message. I reinstalled it right after that (precautions). I know it is not mcafee causing the problems. I am not to familiar with vista so maybe its something with that. Thanks for any suggestions.

There might be the spyware in your computer . Download and install Malware removal tools from Net and install it in your computer .
Start scan by using malware removal tools software after update fully. Malwarebytes is one of the best and trusted software , which is easily available on net free.

I already had that installed. Performed scan and still nothing. There was nothing found during the scan. In the past, I have only gotten it to work once and that was when I deleted the google toolbar. I was able to play one of the free games that had not worked in past then. After I closed the game, it went back to recieving the same message not connected to the internet. During the game I never received any popups or advertisements. I am wondering if it might be something with a popup blocker. I cant find any more on the computer. Thanks.

Hi,

If you continue to experience problems feel free to submit a support ticket at iWin.com support page at:

http://support.iwin.com/ics/support/defaul...p;target=_blank

In the mean time you should try reinstalling the iWin Game Manager. The latest version can be downloaded from the link below. Make sure to first remove the iWin Games program from your uninstall program utility in the control panel. Then install the iWin Game Manager.

http://dl.iwin.com/games/iWinGamesSetup.exe

After reinstalling the game manager please check your manager settings and make sure that it is set to connect automatically to the Internet when it starts up. Just click on the Settings button at the top right of the game manager window and check off the top two boxes then click OK.

We have actually tested the unlimited free games on a Vista computer with McAfee and was successful in playing a number of free games. Although we are only testing using the free McAfee antivirus. If you have a purchased version of McAfee, the best way to make sure McAfee is not blocking the game manager is to uninstall it and then try playing a free game.

I have tried all of that several times and still not working. I am wondering if it might have something to do with my computer settings, but I can't find it. I am not that familar with Vista, so it could be something with that.

I am actually having a similar issue with McAfee and Iwin. I also cannot get on the internet on certain Iwin games that have to access the internet. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the dang Iwin game manager so many times that if someone recommends that to me, I will hit myself. I have noticed that McAfee is viewing some iwin game files as either viruses or trojan horses. I really think this is a McAfee issue as I have had Iwin for over a year and I had NO issues until I installed McAfee a couple of weeks ago. I tried to get McAfee tech to help me with a go-around to force their anti-virus program to accept the files but I spent 20 minutes with some guy from southeast asia who was more concerned with following his note cards, so no help there. Iwin is no help either, they have so far sent me instructions on how to download games and that I need to reinstall the game manager (insert scream). Should I scrap McAfee or does anyone have any recommendations?

Just a thought to both of you?

Uninstall McAfee and install AVG Free and update it?

Ooops forgot a Link, it is the one on the left.

http://free.avg.com/

See if that makes a difference?

If it works, then you will know where the Problem is for sure. If it makes no difference then it could be Vista conflicting, but you will narrow it down a bit.

Post back and let us know? It may help someone else out if it works.

:thumbsup:

Yes, that worked. I was right, McAfee is thinking certain Iwin game files are trojans. No problems now. Thanks for the advice! :thumbsup:

There you Go, Mate.

Maybe you can Help others out on Iwin's Forum?

That is the Name of the Game!

I am sure Iwin would appreciate input on the Fix, it must be driving them crazy?

Disable your antivirus, first. Now, check and see if it works...if it doesn't work, delete your temporary internet files/cache: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/260897 --Now, if it still doesn't work after going through the previous two steps, report back on what you are experiencing. Sounds like antivirus is picking it up and not allowing connection.

There's no need to uninstall the anti virus software...

1.Open the Internet explorer
2.Open the Internet options(Can be substituted by the inetcpl.cpl command from Run)
3.Reset Internet explorer: Advanced>click Reset>Click reset> Click on close
4.Close the Internet explorer and then open it once again.
I.Content tab> Ensure Content Adivisor is disabled
II.Connections>Lan settings>Ensure that all settings are unchecked
III.Advanced>Ensure “Check for server certificate revocation “ is unchecked
5.Click start>programs>accessories>Command Prompt and type the following command:
Flush dns:
Ipconfig /flushdns
Reset Winsockets:
Netsh winsock reset(Restart required)
please note for Vista and 7 : Click start>programs>accessories>Right click on Command Prompt and select Run as administrator.

I'm having the same problem. I just got Malwarebytes yesterday, and now, suddenly, iWin Games Manager doesn't work anymore. IWin Games is not helping, as they told me to ask my antivirus software provider what's wrong. I don't think it's the antivirus. I think it's Malwarebytes.

For the record, I'm using Firefox 3, Avast antivirus and Windows Defender in addition to Malwarebytes. And I have no clue how to fix this. Machines and I are unmixy things. So please put any solutions in the simplest language possible.
