I liked the site very much as Graphics are nice, and cards got big format (Good for for the elderly) unlike Yahoo Spades and other sites.
I also made many friends throughout the years and often meet for a game.
But since 4 weeks although I can get connected the game freezes after the 1st move.I consequently get booted after a short time and lose my precious rating.
I tried all sorts of things and followed all MSN problem fixing procedures:
1- I installed the latest version of Adobe flash player.
2- I lowered Security and Privacy levels as prescribed.
3- I opened all ports relating to MSN gaming Zone.
4- I tried getting connected after disabling my Firewall and Antivirus.
5- My OS meets the minimum requirements of the site: XP SP3, IE8, 2800 Intel Original processor with 1 GB of RAM, and a 250 HD. I know this isn't the best in town but has been running very well. I even tried formatting and Installing a fresh copy of XP that has passed the Genuine test.
6- I installed the game on my Son's Toshiba Satellite, but the problem persisted.
7- I went to a different location as I thought my IP was banned but it didn't work neither.
8- I came to the conclusion that my Internet Provider have pulled out some socks preventing people from playing card games!
Please tell me what you think guys as I feel very sad for not meeting my friends and playing my favourite game.
Your help is much appreciated.
