When I try to play games such as Chuzzle or Bejeweled in pogo.com, real arcade or gamehouse.com, all I get is an empty box with a smaller box in the left corner with a red x in it.
I have followed these instructions. When I restart, there is nothing to "expand" in extension or mime. I thought the registry keys would be recreated.
Please help.

When you browse the Internet from a computer that is running Microsoft Windows XP, some Web pages display a red X in Microsoft Internet Explorer instead of a picture.

CAUSE
This behavior may occur if the subkeys under the following registry keys are corrupted:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Plugins\Extension
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Plugins\MIME

RESOLUTION
Warning Serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly by using Registry Editor or by using another method. These problems might require that you reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that these problems can be solved. Modify the registry at your own risk.

To resolve this issue, remove the corrupted registry subkeys. The registry subkeys will be recreated. To remove the registry subkeys, follow these steps:1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
2. Locate the following registry subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Plugins\Extension
3. Expand Extension.
4. Right-click each subkey under the Extension subkey, and then click Delete.
5. Locate the following registry subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Plugins\MIME
6. Expand MIME.
7. Right-click each subkey under the MIME subkey, and then click Delete.
8. Exit Registry Editor.
9. Restart the computer.

I have installed and uninstalled flash player 9 several times. I have turned the pop up blocker on and off many times. I've deleted my temporary files, cookies, reset my security levels, reinstalled java, ran REGCUR (and corrected problems), Registry Mechanic, Ewido SpyWare, XoftSPYSe, Spybot, Ad-Aware Personal and anything else I could find. Does anyone have any other suggestions?

If your using Internet Explorer, I would suggest trying another browser, like Firefox.

(I suggest backing up your registry before you do this)

Do exactly what it states above but I recommend that you download a freeware ap named Erunt to backup your registry before you make the changes above:

ERUNT - The Emergency Recovery Utility NT
Registry Backup and Restore for Windows NT/2000/2003/XP
