games online load/play very sloooowwww

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.games (More info?)

i like playing games online like text twist. i've always had no problem
doing this until recently. the loading process is painfully slow. i have
cable connection so it's not that. when the game finally loads it is very
sluggish. i wil type the word and nothing happens, then i hear the sound
effect and finally it shows the movement. it's like a major delayed
reaction. i can type 5 or 6 words before the first word finally appears.
i've done all the suggestions offered. ( i think) dont know much about
computers and could have screwed something up myself. i tried system restore
and i guess i didnt go back far enough. it's basically the same on every
website and every game i try to play. any suggestions?

    Hi Trish,

    You might have some browser add-on's installed which are slowing
    you down. Try this free software to remove any such malware:

    hey jimmy,
    i tried that out. i dont have any spyware at all. any other ideas? i
    think i may have deleted some files a while back that i thought were spyware.
    it's just weird cause everything else runs fine. even the
    advertisements/commercials they play before the game runs just fine. oh
    well. thanks for the suggestion.
    at least you cared : )

    Hi Trish,

    Sorry to hear that your Text Twist and other similar games are still slow..

    Online games are usually developed using Flash, Java, or Virtual Machine.
    The most likely solution to a problem with an online game is to install, upgrade,
    or reinstall the right one for the game site you're playing on.

    A. For Zone.com games: Zone.com are converting most of their games for Flash
    to avoid the conflicts between the Sun Java system and Microsoft's Virtual Machine.
    Install Flash from: http://sdc.shockwave.com/shockwave/download/frameset.fhtml

    B. Most other game sites still use Java. You can install Java and find more help
    tips at this webpage: http://java.com/en/download/help/pogo.jsp

    C. If the online game still won't load, or gives you errors, try these steps:

    1. Click START / Control Panel / Internet Options and click on the Advanced Tab.

    2. Below HTTP 1.1 is the Sun Java/ Microsoft VM section: Make sure all Java choices
    are unchecked (especially JIT) and then press [OK]. You may be prompted to reboot.

    3. If you don't see a Microsoft VM section then download Microsoft Virtual Machine for:
    Windows 98 / Me / NT / XP from: http://www.abxair.com/software/msjavx86.exe

    4. After you download Java, double-click the file to install it, reboot and then follow
    the directions in Steps 1. and 2..to disable JIT compiler and other advanced options.

    * Whenever you get a Java Virtual Machine Security Update from Windows Update, you
    will have to follow Steps 1. and 2..to disable JIT compiler and other adv. options again.

    6. If the problem persists Adjust Your browser settings using this basic example:
    http://www3.sympatico.ca/nibblesnbits/EnterRooms.html#IE

    7. Try these suggestions for Zone's Java Games:
    http://classic.zone.msn.com/zzzz/help/helpjavagames.asp

    8. Maybe it's a software conflict: Make certain that your Firewall or Antivirus program is
    not configured to block Java Applets. Norton's products for example have that option.
    If you're unsure temporarily disable Startup programs one at a time, starting with Firewall,
    Antivirus & AdBlockers using: http://support.microsoft.com/?scid=331796
    or this utility: http://new.jtsoft2001.com/windows/startup.php

    9. If you have a Coffee Cup icon in your system tray (next to the time) you might have a
    conflict between MS VM and Java: Uninstall Java using Control Panel / Remove Programs.

    10. Check the Help / Support section of the game site in question for Java topics relevant to
    that site. There is usually an email or a (non Java) help chat available as well. :-)

    Hello
    I didn't know how to post a new question so I am replying to an old. I have
    a problem loading POGO games. I get the word "done" but with erros on page.
    When I check for details is says no loading frame or loading frame null. I
    have tried reinstalling java, I deleted all cookies but am still stuck. I
    think I might have deleted an active x control file but don't know how to
    reload or to check on this. Any clues??
