Ok not sure this is right place but here goes. In order for me to do what I need to on the internet I have to use three browsers not at the same time mind you but here are some examples. I belong to to a service that just recently upgraded I had to up grade my Java to use it, this was on IE7 worked fine before. Java says everything loaded right and was working no its not. Ended up using Firefox works fine here. Can only use my POGO games On Netscape Ver. 8.0. These are just a couple of examples.

I can't do all on one browser I have to use all three to be able to do all I need to do.

Have done everything I've been told by the different companys to fix this problem nothing seems to work.

I'm running XP Home SP2/ Older PC 1.77mh prossesor 512 mb pc100 ram 60G HD.
If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated Thank You.

Looking at the requirements for POGO, IE7 instructions are not included in the link below. You can rollback to IE6 by simply removing IE7 in Add/remove program.

A lot of users use Firefox and only use IE for updates and the rare site that only uses IE.

If you use Firefox alot, the IE Tab is a great extension to have for IE updates and the odd site that uses only IE.

For the fun of it;
If you use Firefox 2.0 try the Fusion Alternative 2 Theme.
From the comments, it looks alot like the Netscape browser.
There is also Fusion Alternative.
