Hi Guys:

My son is having trouble playing Runescape. He has had no trouble before but I just had my modem replaced and now he can't start the game - he just gets a red X.

I have a dial up modem. I browsed the forum for other issues like this. I tried going into Java Plug In in the control panel and making sure something was checked in proxies, but that didn't help. I tried disabling Sun Java but ditto. I tried right clicking the X and choosing show picture as that has worked in the past for other red X problems. Ditto. I checked for updates on Microsoft but none were needed.

Please help. :thumbsup:

Hi Chops

This would appear to be quite a routine problem. Microsoft have created a list of possible fixes at the site below:

I would follow these instructions and see if they resolve the problem. If not just let me know and we can think of other things to try :thumbsup:
