None of my Pogo games work either. But once in a while one of them will work
if I right click on the logo and choose "run as administrator."
Pogo games apparently won't update these to Vista compatible. Shame.

Nope, did you install anything recently? New driver update? New Game? New Application? Anything.

Respond with your system specs, you can use System Restore to rewind your system to before it crashed, and if that doesn't work


I posted the following message in an independent post named "Solution for
Game launcher stopped working" because it might attract more attention that

A year ago or so I purchased a game from Oberon media, which worked fine
until a few weeks ago when I could no longer launch it. I would get the error
message "Game launcher has stopped working."

After fruitless email exchanges with Oberon Media (whose customer service
did their utmost to help me but seemed just as baffled by the issue), I
searched far and wide online tonight and I found a solution, which I copied
and will post here for information in case it may be of help to someone
else--this solution comes straight from Oberon Media, go figure since they
weren't able to help me with a tech solution:

Still having problems with your Game Launcher loading in Vista? Thanks to
Oberon Media techs the problem has been resolved (at least for me). Try this:

If you are receiving the DRM activator error message do the following to
correct the issue.
1 - Left click on Start
2.- Right click on Computer
3 - Left click on Properties 4 - Left click on Advanced System Settings
5 - Under Performance click on Settings
6 - Left click on Data Performance Settings (on my computer the tab said
Data Execution Prevention)
8 - Click on Apply and then OK.

UAC: (User Account Control)
Open up Control Panel, and type in user account into the search box. You'll
see the link for "Turn User Account Control (UAC) on or off". Click it.
Uncheck the box, and reboot your computer.

Good Luck!

Best of luck to those who are experiencing the same difficulties!
