Cant play streaming audio, live radio fm stations in vista

I cant play any streaming audio in my windows vista no matter what i do. i probably tried everything that people out there recommend and nothing solves the problem. I have all updates on all programs, i tried different media players, not just WMP, but still nothing. I am desperate.
It starts buffering, and then i get the dialog box with the following statement: "A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available."

Please, help me!!!
Thank you!

    hi wayneard, thanks for posting. i checked all of what you suggested and it is all OK. I don't know what could be causing this. are you a vista user? have you experienced any of the problems i described? I know more people who experience the same thing and are desperate too.

    hi wayneard,
    thanks. I haven't installed the Vista Service Pack 1, but I am doing so right now. I will see what happens when it is installed on my computer, and will let you know then.

    Just checking...have you installed Vista's Service Pack 1?

    (BTW, no, I still use XP. I will continue to use it until Windows 7 comes out. I read waaaay too many problems with Vista.)

    Just checking, but in your browser Tools>Internet Options...>Advanced, are the boxes checked in the Multimedia section for Sounds, Video, and Animations to play in web pages?

    Also in WMP, Tools>Options>Network are all the boxes checked under Streaming Protocols except for the Use Ports box?

    Those are a couple things that come to mind. Hope it helps.

My computer was reformated, but I cant use my Multi media becuse there is no audio device which the program asking for, what shall i do

Not sure if you are saying you dont have a sound card installed or if when you try to play a movie it says it cant play the audio. if it is the later then i advise you intall a few codec packs. starting with divx, then community codec pak, and ac3 filter. these are the most common codecs required for most of the audio in media files. if it asking for an actual hardware sound insure that you have direct x installed as the media center in windows vista uses direct audio to paly the audio tracks in media files.

I search the '' Perfect MMORPG''what is?

Definition: MMORPG is an acronym for Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game. These are role-playing games where thousands of gamers play online in a virtual and persistent environment on the Internet.
Usage: If you have a natural tan, you probably aren't a hardcore MMORPG player.

A Massively-Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game. An online game that is very similar to windows 95 with ICQ and a fantasy background. Double-click everywhere to kill an endless stream of monsters in a fantasy world and gain new powers. Do this for hours on end while chatting with someone named "Drizzt23" or "MikethePike" about where in Korea or France or Alabama you live and what was on TV last night. Contrary to the name, these games do not feature role-playing, so don't worry. Perfect for people who are too slow for Counter-Strike, and with no friends or imagination for role-playing. A: "Caleb played 34 hours of Lineage 2 this weekend!"
B: "Wow, how many levels did he gain?"
A: "That was amazing, he gained 4 levels!! Unfortunately, he got a cramp in his mouse-finger and had to quit."
B: "Awesome, he's a true role-player!"

Video streaming problem

Since it is only itv that seems to be having problems and checking the site myself where it reported that it was having problems instead of playing the selected clip, it is just going to be a matter of time until they resolve the issues. I don't know if it a hardware failure at their end or if they are having load problems, but chances are it is not an issue with your system.

I cant find a way to use a live webpage desktop

The earlier "active desktop" function in Windows XP that allowed a live webpage as a desktop is no longer present in Vista. It was replaced by the SideBar. You probably need to look for a sidebar gadget that offers this functionality.

In a "small business" environment, where 30 computers are being primarily used for "office" purposes (Word, Excel, E-mail), a standard "business Internet" package is sufficient, costing about $60/month,
i.e., $2/computer per month. Workers should be "working" and should not be streaming FM-radio stations, and should not be watching YouTube videos.
