If you have any trouble with Pogo games, there are several resources at Pogo to help with this.
I have personally found to have some problems with a few programs running in the background, and suggest that you might want to look at a few of these if you are having trouble as well.
* Yahoo Messenger - especially older versions
* Software/operating software - Pogo is known to have issues with some older Windows software (i.e., 98, ME, out of date patches, 3.1, etc.), AOL browser, some toolbars, out of date java
* Facebook - love facebook, but I have figured out that this is what causes me to freeze up - if I have facebook open in another window, it is always doing the active updates from your friends posts, etc, plus the java chat engine running. It will freeze me everytime it seems. Glad I figured this one out.
Pogo's compatability/troubleshooting tools can be found under their help section, and by running a program called EasyInfo.
If you cannot find it, let me know and I will walk you to it.
