I have SP2 loaded on my computer and when trying to play games in pogo.com
and am running into trouble with pop-ups not allowing me to enter tables
games such as canasta. I have listed pogo.com in my trusted list but still
have trouble with games played at tables, i.e. card games, dominoes, etc.
Please help this is really frustrating.

Hi Lois,

Did you configure IE to allow popups from that site as well?
Here's a random sample on how to perform the task:

Hey there,

Yes I believe that I have. My problem is that if I open a table and am
waiting for someone else to join, I see "Waiting to Start" and I am sitting
at the table. The person wanting to join sees "Closed" and cannot join the
table. Also if I try to sit at a table occupied by someone I can sit but no
window opens up to allow playing to start. Still going crazy. Hope to here
from you soon, Jimmy.

Ta Ta for now, Lois

Hi Lois,

Going back to the previous instructions, uncheck the option to
"Block pop-ups" using the screenshot in Step 2 as your guide.

This will help determine if it's an SP 2 popup blocker issue or not.
