    AFTER IT SAYS I HAVE COMPLETED THE DOWNLOAD I GET THIS ERROR.

    We encountered an issue while trying to automatically install Java¬ô software onto your machine. As a result, Java software was not installed properly.

    ? don't know, I haven't installed Java...
    I know some web sites use java, and "Fire Fox" browser won't open them..
    But the same site opens just fine with "Internet Explorer"...

    So, maybe this should be a "Sofware" issue.. not games.

    Well the ones in Internet Explorer (for me) are...
    Microsoft VM
    Java consol enabled
    JIT compiler enabled

    Multimedia
    Auto image resizing
    image tool bar
    play animations
    play sounds
    play videos
    show pictures
    smart dithering..

    I skiped the ones that aren't checked.. And other ones that I don't think apply.

    That is the installer that connects to the net and downloads right?..
    If so I got that too, You'll need to download the whole program and install it your self.

    ok, i think i took care of most of the problem. i am now able to play on yahoo games. but my favorite website is uproar. for some reason i can't play games on that site. is there somewhere where i might have disabled java from that site? does that make sense?

    Any spyware programs?.. I just went to uproar, and Fire Fox won't open the game.. it needs a plug-in.. Says it's java..

    I'm not sure about java settings.. I've never really messed with it.

    Edit: IE opened the game just fine...
