At TarotAdvice.com, we want to give you the best, state-of-the-art, interactive experience possible for your tarot reading. Some computer settings, though, can interfere with our program. Fortunately most problems can be solved by following one or two of the steps below. Please look through all the steps to make sure your specific issue is resolved.
The easiest and most common 'fix' for any technical issues with the tarot readings is simply to click the refresh/reload button in your browser. You might also want to verify that your browser is compatible with the readings, as many older versions may not work -- here is our list of recommended browsers.
If your reading still isn't working properly, please look over the following sections for further assistance.
Section 1 -- Flash Player
Your tarot reading will only work with Flash Player version 12 or higher. To see if you have version 12, please click here. If you don't have it, you can upgrade your player by using the link provided on that page. Once you've made the upgrade, try your reading again. If that doesn't work, or if you already have version 12 installed, please see Section 2 -- Firewalls.
Note: if you are in a corporate networked environment, you may not be able to upgrade your player without assistance from the network administrator.
A firewall is software that is designed as your first line of defense to prevent hackers and other unauthorized users from accessing your computer and files. If you are using a firewall, it could be blocking the Flash Player, or our scripting that is needed to display your reading.
If you have Norton Personal Firewall (NPF) or Norton Internet Security (NIS):
• Go to Firewall Settings > Set slider to Medium > click Custom Level button and make sure your ActiveX Control Security is set to none.
If you have Norton Personal Firewall:
• Go to Settings > Ad Blocking > Turn Off
If you have Norton Internet Security:
• Go to Norton AntiSpam > Ad Blocking > Turn Off
If you have another brand of firewall, adjust any of the above settings per its control interface. Pay particular attention to any Ad Blocking settings, or turn off third-party Ad Blocking software if you have any running.
If you don't have a firewall, or if your reading doesn't work after adjusting your firewall, please see Section 3 -- Clearing Your Cache.
If the reading starts to load, but then hangs before it is completely loaded, please try clearing your cache. Web pages that you have viewed on the Internet are stored temporarily on your hard drive in a storage area called a "cache." When the cache fills up, browser performance can slow down and cause page loading to stall. To clear your cache, please refer to the list below for instructions for your browser:
Try your reading again. If that fails, please see Section 4 -- Browser Settings.
Once you have made any necessary changes to your settings, please try your reading again. If that fails, close your browser, restart your computer and try the reading once more.
If the reading still doesn't work, please see Section 5 -- Ad/Pop-up Blockers.
If you're using a pop-up blocker it could be interfering with the reading. You can see if this is the case by disabling your pop-up blocker and trying the reading again.
If you're using a Windows machine, it's possible that your ad/pop-up blocker has created an entry in your registry that is interfering with the reading. Turning off or uninstalling the ad/pop-up blocker may solve this problem. Or you may need to try to reinstall your flash player while turned off or uninstalled. Click here for the latest version.
