Hi, I'm a new subscriber here. Just happened to fall into this website and hope it's a keeper.
I've had a frustrating problem downloading games at worldwinner since I got this new computer 4 months ago. I've asked my manufacturer (Dell), the game website itself and my ISP for help and instructions at least a dozen times each until they don't even reply to me anymore. Still, the problem persists. I've tried to figure it out myself only to result in having 2 crashes on my computer and having to restart the entire system from scratch both times.
When I ordered my computer I specified that the 2 main things I use a computer for are emails and playing online games. Since I had to reprogram my computer I don't even have my emails anymore as well as not getting to play my favorite games.
OK, enough whining. Here is the problem.
When I click on "Play Game" at Worldwinner.com, it begins the downloading process but just when it looks like the downloading is finished I get 2 error messages, "Error:downloading File" and "Error retrieving game configuration".
Sometimes the whole website disappears and I find myself back to my desktop.
I have closed all applications and programs including firewall, anti-spyware, pop up blockers and I've lowered my "Security" to "Medium", and even to "Low Medium" in some areas, but none of this helps the situation.
I also have a problem when I try to play games at Pogo.com (worldwinner's affiliate). I can download a game there and play it until "intermission" but then, when another game should start to play, my computer gets frozen and I cannot play another game. I have to re-enter the website in order to play one game again.
I have Windows XP, lots of memory and IE 6. (By the way, my computer says I have IE 6 and I have the blue E icon in my programs list and desktop, BUT it is NOT listed in my add/remove programs. could that be part of the problem? also, I don't have the very latest IE program because I have dial-up and was told it would be too strong for dial-up. what is your opinion?)
It seems there should be some simple solution but why is it no one knows? do you??????
Thanks for your help!
