    Does your system meet the system requirements for the latest version of Java? Click here.

    I'm assuming you're playing an online game? and this is a browser window that pops-up? Which browser are you using? And have you tried seeing if the same problem occurs when using different browsers?

    Are you also running with all the latest Windows Updates and service pack levels for you system?

    I don't know if this will help but it couldn't hurt to look. Sometimes there are older versions of Java still installed. Can you check Add and Remove Programs (XP) or Programs and Features (Vista, 7) and remove any old versions that might be there?

    If the website needs Java Runtime Environment (JRE) to run, I'm sure you can't change or get around that.

    Have you tried clearing your cookies?

    Is this game website Pogo? If you haven't already, you could try asking your question at their forums. Someone there might have experienced this problem before.

    Kind of a fun looking site. I'm running out of ideas. Perhaps Java needs to work with other software. How about updating the graphics driver? For best results, first uninstall the old driver from Add and Remove Programs or Programs and Features.

    Ah-Ha! Pogo!

    1) As mailpup already suggested, you might try posting in their forums as well and
    2) I'm not a "gamer" myself but some friend's are. One time past when they had problems with Pogo games, i found it was a Pogo issue.. So... also from having skimmed through Pogo forums in the past, is not unusual for Pogo to have their own issues/tech problems

    just in case you can't resolve it, could be a Pogo problem (and nothing you're doing wrong)

    I hear ya! It's frustrating when one contacts tech support help... and you get the feeling that all they know is how to read from a script.

    At least Pogo didn't tell you to reinstall Windows!! (or do they? LOL.. i've never called them)
