To Get What I Wanted I Had to Give Up What I Had

Interested in what I did? It took a few hours to do actually, old old computer otherwise it wouldn't have taken but a few minutes. Anyway, I play a game online, a strategy game. Java had an update this morning. It said it doesn't work with Chrome. So okay, no problem. Yeah right, no problem. First I went to my game. Half a board. In other words I couldn't play it, not in Google, not in Internet Explorer. I needed to download a flash player. Guess what? The flash player needed to have ALL Chrome windows closed. I had no idea how to do that. I thought it meant I needed to close the Google tab - just X out. Not a chance did that work. It still said I needed to close all Chrome windows. Okay, I went to my control panel and tried to uninstall Google - didn't work. Then I went to settings and disconnected Google there. It did not disconnect Chrome. I went back to the control panel and was able to uninstall Chrome - at last. Now unfortunately I don't have Google except through Internet Explorer, so I don't have a Google home page as I did before. So now everything I do is still on Google through IE. I haven't been back to the game yet to see if all my efforts were worth it. I will though. I have my daily award to pick up soon. Has anybody else had trouble with Chrome? Thanks for reading.

I'm not real happy with IE though that is what I'm running at the moment.

@just4him I know that its older and some of the newer sites require newer browsers. I also like firefox.

Today I realized a major problem. At least Chrome is history on my computer.

I think you're very clever. I couldn't have puzzled out any of that. When I get stuck I send out a 'help' call to my husband.

I don't have anyone to call on, so I need to figure it out or do without, and doing without is not an option.

@just4him I should try harder to fix things myself. I may not always have help and if Vince is away for the day I am stuck too.

@JudyEv I've been such a loner all my life that even when I was married I didn't depend on someone else unless it was way out of my range of figuring it out.

no I never have anything like that happen but then I don't play any games online either so that might be a good thing cause I'm more into working on making what money i can while I can.

Games are a way of relaxing for me. I need a way to unwind after all the online work and writing I do.

@just4him I can understand that I take my time off from here to go out side feed the fish I have & harass my dogs to wear them out a spell.

I just tried to reload it and couldn't. So I'm with IE and I never did like IE, but if it will work with everything I do, I can work with that.

I always use Chrome and I have no problem. I stopped using IE because it gives me problems all the time.

I agree. I stopped using IE a long time ago but now I find I can't use anything else.

Now that I have flash uploaded, I might go back to it. I really don't like IE.

I heard today on the radio that there is some issue with Chrome. It can be hacked more easily or something like that! I hope everything works out with your computer.

A lot of people will start running into issues with Java applications and applets now that Chrome is dropping the support for Java applets. When it happens depends on a lot of factors. Java applets CAN still be made to be compatible, however it is now the responsibility of the web administratiors to make sure to manage Java through the DRS in the control pannal. The makers of the game, have to make it compatible for chrome, and if they can't, you use IE, or MAYBE Fire Fox.

@just4him I have no idea what support Firefox. All I know is that java has been a primary application for at least a decade. I'm a little confused as to why Java is getting pushed aside.

@BethieAnnie I agree. Java is everywhere. Now I have nothing but problems. Oh well, it will all get sorted out, hopefully with my new computer as soon as I get it.

@just4him I am getting a new computer, too. You almost have to have the latest technology to make it all work. I wonder if Java is falling because the internet is now cross platform. Java and mobile, and tablets have has problems from go. Now applications are different, and even PC users have full access to them. What will java do to make sure they don't become a forgotten technology?

My oldest son put together my desk top for me in 1999 and has kept it going since than. I do not have a clue as to what to do. My husband and I want to take computer classes when we retire.

That sounds like a good idea. I know what I need to when it comes to the computer. I did take some classes when I was in college. It was mandatory with the program I was taking.

I played at Pogo every day. I can now say I "usedto" play at pogo. Now the side goes down most of the time in the middle of a game. It is not fun anymore. It says thereĀ“s a failure at the flashplayer, but when I go there it tells me that it is updated and working well. I suppose you will have to put up with me for more hours now

I'm still having issues with the game, but it should sort itself out when I get a new desktop and don't need to rely on this dinosaur of a laptop.
