Owls, can you help me to get into new chat room please? I am using Internet Explorer, downloaded Java, disabled ad blocker and keep getting mssg saying to disable ad blocker. Then I get a mssg saying Internet Explorer blocked this website from installing an ActiveX control. I clicked on the install button then I get a mssg saying windows has blocked this software because it can't verify unknown publisher. HELP PLEASE/ Rockymthorserider would LOVE to join new chat room.

Go to Start, then your Control Panel, then to Programs.

Make sure you have Java installed only once.

In your top Menu bar, go to Tools.

You will see Pop-up Blocker, with option to turn on or off.

I have disabled ad blocker. Still cannot get in

I solely access the forum and chat using my smart phone. When I first came back to ABT, I registered for chat and there was a tracker feature that monitored how many people were in chat imbedded in my browser(it is the default browser that comes with Samsung phones). Now it isn't there and I am getting an invalid password message when I try to log in. Anyone know why this is happening?

Hey guys,

I just created my new user account for the chat but it keeps saying 'Invalid user or password' when I try to log in. Does it usually take a while for it to process?

For many months i could not get into the chatroom. Than after an e-mail from Steve i was able to get back into the chat room and chatted for about 2 weeks. This was using AOL. Then the AOL version was deleted to be replaced with a new version.
Can't get into the chatroom with the new AOL version, or on Waterfox, Firefox or other programs I have tried.
1- nothing happens when I click the chat icons...........or
2- I get a black screen asking to get Java but downloading Java does not help: same black screen.
need :help:

a lot of browsers are no longer using Java plugin, even oracle the company that owns java has stated that there is no longer a need for plugins, the future of java therefore is not certain therefore it would be best if the chat updates to a later plugin free platform that can be run on all browsers.

I have a PC with Windows 10 Home. This PC did work for chat, now I can chat.
