    Try PopCap ...
    What happens when you try to play these games? More details would help in the analysis.

    My screen has a blank showing of where the the game should be...like if you load the game(s) on the sites I mentioned; that little square that comes up to show the game in, just comes up with a little symbol in the upper left corner with three shapes (triangle, circle, and square)...


    Does this help?

    What browser are you using? Are you up-to-date on the version?

    There might be an option either in the standard options or in security relating to allowing java to run.

    Abel,

    Try this...Go under Tools. Click on Internet Options. Click on Security and then click on Custom Level. Scroll down to Microsoft VM and it should say Java Permissions right under that. If that is disabled, set it High Safety and see if that works. You might also need to scroll down further and see if your Java Scripting is enabled.

Games...NOTHING will let me play them....am I missing something here...What do you all have on your comps that let you play games? This sucks badly...and totaly weird, it worked fine, until we unplugged it to move it around?!?!?!! [​IMG]

    I used the same solution as Colin. Worked like a charm.
