Open Norton Security go to Security, click History, select Full History from the drop down menu and look for your game to be listed.

The best way to do this is to open the game and check the history in Norton immediately after attempting to open it.

Hello round2001

Please go to the Firewall setting>Program Control. See if your game is listed under the programs. If it isn't there, then go to the location where the game's .exe is and click on Add. and Apply. Do the same thing for Pogo and see if that is listed. Actually, I'm not sure if Pogo needs to be entered. After doing this, then try your game and see if you can play it. If you still can't, then try adding Pogo also.

Re: how can i find out if norton is blocking a game?

I too am unable to run Pogo, in my case, the game is bridge. I came here hoping for an answer. But those above are puzzling.

1. Spam Squasher says "Open Norton Security go to Security, click History". But there is nothing which says "History" under Security. At least, not when I open Norton. Where is this "History" found?

2. Norton Fighter says "Please go to the Firewall setting>Program Control." Again, I see no such thing. Under Security, there is "Manage Firewall". That's the closest I can find. But under that, the closest I can find is "Program Rules". But that tab seems to include programs on my PC, not online games. 

So, how to run online games at a site like Pogo?

Thanks.

Re: how can i find out if norton is blocking a game?

I have this problem with Pogo,especially with Pogo Bridge. I keep getting booted out (but not every time) and the original screen - the Pogo Bridge start screen - now shows the dangerous site blocked message. This is just wrong; I've been using Pogo for years. 

There's an additional problem in that Pogo isn't just one page. E.g., when you got to the Bridge main page, you then pick "rooms", each of which is a new page. Within the rooms, are "tables" which is where the bridge games are actually played, and which of course are a new page (or perhaps these might count as pop-ups.

Here is the main Pogo bridge page:

http:// www . pogo . com/games/bridge?pageSection=ag_1list1_txt_bridge

Here is ONE of he "rooms":

http:// game3 . pogo . com/room/table/frameset.jsp?scrn=GRLeS519&site=pogo&rkey=bridge-plbrsf034&anam=Big+Blue&install=true&seat&rspt=10937&fscreen&ahst=game3.pogo.com&ugifts=0&vmtype=other&rhst= www . pogo . com&vmver=1.8.0_111&game=bridge&table

Here is a "table:

http:// game3 . pogo . com/room/table/frameset.jsp?scrn=GRLeS519&site=pogo&rkey=bridge-plbrsf034&anam=Big+Blue&install=true&seat&rspt=10937&fscreen&ahst=game3. pogo . com&ugifts=0&vmtype=other&rhst=www . pogo . com&vmver=1.8.0_111&game=bridge&table

The bottom line: if Norton simply will not allow me to play Pogo Bridge, I will have to find a new security system. What I need is a way to allow ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING on Pogo's site. How do I do that?

Note that floplot's reply isn't relevant, as Pogo is an online game site, and does not involve an EXE on my PC. 

Thanks, George

I just entered a lengthy reply, after using the email link. When I tried to enter it, it again demanded another confirmation, and in the process, my question was lost.

Please have someone contact me.
