    Thanks to TechMan, Helmut, and Flip,

    I am almost embarrassed to say that although my downloads indicated complete that I discovered when looking in tools that I had to actually had to activate the programs from the download list. So much to learn with the new Windows 8.

    I have successfully downloaded Java and other programs I have been trying although it hasn't solved the gaming problem in Facebook. May be a problem directly with them.

    What a great forum, maybe some day I'll know enough about the program to actually help someone else, have a great day!!

    I dont play any fb games, but I think they don't rely on java, maybe flash/html5?
    Not sure though...

    Same as before (in your other thread), make sure Active X Filtering or Tracking Protection is not blocking the games (games will no doubt be Adobe Flash based ) and I assume you have Flash installed through Windows update.
