MSN Messenger game problems

  lee_robinson1983 14:18 08 Oct 2007


I have MSN Live Messenger installed on my laptop but recently it has not let me play certain shared games that I could before. It no longer lets me play Solitaire Showdown or Minesweeper simply saying 'the game or application is currently unavailable, please try again later'. My friend's works fine and mine used to but now it doesn't. I can still play Uno and Bejeweled though, just not other games, any ideas anyone?? Thanks

Which windows ?

Have you Got Java installed, Adobe Flash Player and have a look at Firewall in case this is blocking it.

Do you have a BT Home hub? as these have firewall rules built in, what changed on your machine just before this problem started.

A little detail of your machine will help us give you more ideas

nothing has changed on the machine, this is the strange thing. It has Norton firewall, internet secutiry package.

It's windows XP Home edition, I am not sure about Java and Adobe but think it does have them as it did work before... This has only happened in the last week, it no longer plays Media Player files as well, it needs a Codec but cannot find it when it automatically searches, is this related?
