Windows Live Messenger Games don't start

This really isn't a major problem, but is a continuing annoyance.

Whenever I try start any of the games on the new(ish) Windows Live Messenger (v8.1) they never start. I get a screen indicating they are loading but it never finishes. On the old MSN Messenger this would sometimes happen, but now it is the only outcome.

Does anyone else experience this and/or is there a fix?

I find they normally work fine, although sometimes a bit slowly and very occasionally the odd one fails to load. It is also sometimes important to allow each screen to fully load before trying to use its links.

The system provides detailed instructions on what to do when things go wrong

xania - thanks for the pointer. It could be the pop-up blocker. I'll post back if I'm successful.
