I have recently downloaded windows xp professional, I am the administrator,
and cannot get into a game room. I can however get into a lobby, and I can
get my zone friends list up. I have downloaded the patch, reloaded the
Javascript and checked all my security settings as the troubleshooting has
advised. I have tried to change the registry files, but the game rooms do
not show up in the registry. When I click on a game room, I get an hourglass
for a quick second, and then nothing. Help!

Hi Putt,

If it did...
