Are you on dialup damee?

If so, then check the properties of the connection and disable "disconnect if idle for more than "xx" minutes".

Sometimes the small amounts of data being transferred during games isn't enough to keep the connection active.

Kev - the only add-on which should affect funkypool is Java.

Try going to www.java.com and downloading the latest versin, to see if this helps.

I think i suggested this on snooker, but i think you have either a corrupted install of Java/Browser, or possibly a spyware issue.

To be sure :

Uninstall Java from control panel, all versions (there may be more than one).

Clear browser history including downloaded program files.

Reboot computer.

Visit windows update ( http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/ ) to make sure everything is up to date and to run the malware removal tool.

Visit http://www.java.com and download a fresh installation.

And hopefully, thats you sorted!
