    Hi all,

    my friend plays Pacific Poker, but hes having problems connecting. Its been uninstalled, cookies etc cleared, rebooted, but still wont connect. When reinstalling and then the login, it already has his login details, so presumably its not uninstalling properly. Iv just installed here and logged on no problem to his account? Maybe still in registry somewhere? anybody know a way of ridding it completely so its a clean install?

    System restore to a point in time before the software started to play up might help.

    Might be some data in the user profile and also the registry that isnt being cleared when you uninstall. 8)

    I am not familiar with that software but the reason he can't get it to connect may be related to a firewall either the built in XP SP2 one, Norton, Zone alarm or one built into his router etc. If he has a firewall try disabling it whilst you are troubleshooting and then if that works, check out the related documentation for how to configure a firewall to allow this particular program to function.

    Different programs use different ports to transfer information. Firewalls by default block ports, so this might be an area to focus on.
