i cant play the "free" online games.i click on the download for"Essential MSN
Games File" and get unable to install. I have disabled all firewalls,pop-ups,
deleted files. Funny i can download the games but not the free ones. Somebody
told me it was the ActiveX control that is missing.I was also told that it
was bad to had in your pc. If it is so bad ,why does MSN need it for its own
games.I didnt have this problem before I installed SP2.I have the DirectX
installed. Please help me. My husband also cant download on his pc...THanks
