    Can anyone help?

    My wife loves to play www.pogo.com, www.miniclip and www.popcap.com - a few weeks ago these loaded up fine. The site in question primarily is pogo and miniclip - once the link to 'any' game is clicked the game pops up and just stays on the screen with the mouse displaying the hourglass. The game no longer loads up. They are java popups I think. I havent downloaded anything or changed anything with regard to my internet settings.

    I have AOL 8 on a P4 2.66ghz PC2700 768mb Ram.

    Internet Explorer is the same no games.

    Yesterday I downloaded 'Opera Browser' from CNET.Com which works absolutely fine. Loads everything...

    Anyone have any suggestions as to why AOL and I.E. will not load these games?

    Thanks!

    not sure about aol and its security options / policies ... but:

    IE
    -----

    - open up IE
    - go to tools--> internet options --> security

    see what is set for 'Security level for this zone'

    click on the button for that level and go through the security settings and confirm that java permissions , applets etc are not disabled.

    - go to tools--> internet options --> Advanced

    make sure java is enabled

    The settings you describe for I.E. are factory standard - these sites loaded up on I.E. a few weeks ago. Yet they dont load now? Its not the Internet Sites as they load up in Opera. The sites also load on my work PC..........

    logic dictates that its either the game site changing their code and now it doesn't work with your particular IE setup - or something has changed on your machine that you are not as yet aware of.

    You mentioned using AOL 8 - does this include all the guardian settings , anti web popup settings etc - these may be worth re-checking / turning off to test.
