    Dear support guy, I am sorry if i am posting this in the wrong spot, but i need help. I am a member of a game website called Pogo. it says to download java sun which i did and then to put its website name in my pop blocker to allow it to show me my stats, etc.... which again i did. but i still can not see my stats and etc... I also can not play some of the games on the website due to this. can you help me? :confused:
    Thank you.
    sincerely,
    babygirl2 :)

    Do you know who makes the popup blocker you're running?

    i assume that you are using internet explorer and some kind of downloaded program that blocks the opening of extra internet explorer windows...if that is the case then there is a pretty simple solution to that. stop using internet explorer and the pop-up stopper. go to www.mozilla.org or google mozilla and download firefox. it is a more secure browser with pop-up blocker built in.

    Have you tried to just disable the Yahoo popup blocker when playing at Pogo and if so, does it work fine if you do that?

    Check the restricted zones in Internet Explorer. In IE click on Tools>InternetOptions>Security>Restricted. Then click on the Sites button. If it's listed, remove it

    Also try adding it to Trusted Zones.

    I'm afraid it did not work. at this point I think I give up. I am getting so frustrated with it. I appreciate everyones help and I thank you very much for trying to figure it out.
    I think I am a lost cause.lol.....
    I wish I could experiment with the different things but I really know nothing about computers and am afraid to click on things and wind up ruining my computer.
    Thank you again everyone for your help.
