I cant seem to get yahoo games to finish loading on my pc (windows xp sp2). Ive tried using i.e. 6 & 7 and netscape 7.1 and 8 (these two got to the point where they wouldnt even open at all and i just uninstalled them) and I just tried using the latest from fire fox. It gets to the point where it says loading java applet but the room itself wont load. Any Ideas?

Im am now running a new dell computer and have started having the same problem still using
windows xp sp 2 it shows im running java 2 standard edition version 1.5 (build 1.5.0_06-B06)

Whats weird when I first got this system around 1/9 the game room would load if I just hit the
reload button. It quit working a couple of days ago. Any ideas?

Your version of Java is outdated and needs to be updated to take advantage of fixes that have eliminated security vulnerabilities.
Updating Java:

* Download the latest version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6.0
* Scroll down to where it says "Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6
* Click the "Download" button to the right.
* Check the box that says: "Accept License Agreement".
* The page will refresh.
* Click on the link to download Windows Offline Installation, Multi-language and save to your desktop.
* Close any programs you may have running - especially your web browser.
* Go to Start > Control Panel double-click on Add/Remove programs and remove all older versions of Java.
* Check any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name.
- Examples of older versions in Add or Remove Programs:
o Java 2 Runtime Environment, SE v1.4.2
o J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0
o J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 6
* Click the Remove or Change/Remove button.
* Repeat as many times as necessary to remove each Java versions.
* Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.
* Then from your desktop double-click on jre-1_6_0_10-windows-i586-p.exe to install the newest version.
