When the MSN Game Zone page tries to load, I get a message to click on the
yellow bar at the top of the screen for Windows XP to allow - only - hmmm -
no yellow bar appears.
Followed any instructions I could find on MSN's site even vaguely related to
problem.
Suggestions?

Do you already have Heartbeat and Zinfo? Open Internet Properties,
General tab, Settings button, View Objects button. If HeartbeatCtrl or
ZoneIntro Class is listed as Damaged, right-click, click Update to
repair the ActiveX component. If that doesn't work, right-click the
damaged component, click Remove. Reenter the Zone for a fresh install.

It's also possible that your security settings won't allow ActiveX
installs. Try the settings suggested here:

Also, under the Advanced tab, select both "Install on Demand" settings.
If Security Settings for "Internet" aren't set to "Download Signed
ActiveX Controls", "Prompt", you may not see the yellow bar.
