    In the absence of any system info, this is just a stab in the dark.

    Try right clicking on the Internet Explorer icon and selecting Start without Add-ons. Go play poker and see if it happens again.

    Has it ever worked?

    I have the same problem on FarmTown, because the graphics are so intensive, the card in my laptop cant handle it.

    Have a look and see if theres a low resolution version, or check the applications FAQ's.
    a link to the games page should be at the bottom of the first page.

    This sounds like the problem you originally posted here. Is it? If so, does disabling and enabling Add-ons still get around the problem?

    I suspect that the add-on concerned is Flash or Shockwave. To confirm that, can you go to the site concerned and right click on the play area. You should see a small window appear with 2 items, Settings and About Adobe Flash Player X where the X represents a number. Can you confirm you see that and the actual number?

    For future reference, as this is a continuation of your original thread, you should have continued posting there. We'll get it moved there.
