Radio Stream not working with Vista anymore?

Hi there Please Please help me with this issue as its affecting my job!

Im using Vista Home Basic on a Toshiba laptop, AOL as my ISP and Macafee is my viral software - and for some reason the radio broadcast that I listen to on the William Hill website isnt working - Ive updated Java, flashplayer9, shockwave, windows, unblocked the pop up facility, made sure the firewall wasnt blocking this connection etc - - - this is nothing to do with mute buttons, sliders or anything like that as the little screen in flash, actually shows you the connection on screen (which is now blank) so I know its not even connecting to the site so nothing is playing through the screen at all as its not even connecting.

Something I feel needs to be checked, unchecked, enabled or disabled somwehere and is soemthing probably simple and silly - but its driving me to dispair. the radio streams works on my stand alone system that has XP on it .. but not on the laptop with Vista on it.

The weekend though, it did do one of its famous system updates and since then a few things went haywire, the clock and sate had to be adjusted (I discovered this cause windows live messenger wouldnt work, but tis working now) and this radio broadcast wouldnt work, and still isnt working.
My partner (thinking that he was helping) actually did a system restore taking the laptop back a few years lol so retracing the weekends update isnt possible now!

Please please help me if you can!
sincerest regards

Terry

    Sorry but like I say in the main text of my questions, this has NOTHING to do with mute buttons, sliders, volume or sound - this is a CONENCTION problem as the flash media player screen (on the radio stream Im trying to access) is not workings its blank.. so I know its not a 'sound' issue cause the flash screen isnt working (even though I have updated falshplayer 9 and shockwave and java etc)..... thanks for trying anyway!

I cant put a wallpaper


As you have not mentioned the Operating System, let me provide the general information.

But, please do not worry, I'll also provide you the alternate options.

In all the Windows Operating Systems, the Desktop Wallpaper can be changed by using the Display Properties option.

The option to change the Wallpaper is only not available with these Operating Systems:

1) Windows Vista Home basic.
2) Windows 7 Home basic.

However, here's the key.

You may change the Desktop Wallpaper by using any third party Applications.

This also applies to the Windows Vista and Windows 7 Home Basic Operating Systems.

I have mentioned one such Application below:

http://jamesgart.com/wallpaperchanger/WallpaperMasterV2.16.exe

You may download the Wallpaper Changer Application from the below link.

Hope this helps.

Please feel free to ask further questions.

From vista basic to windows 7... T_T


Windows 7 is still in beta testing is it not?  This means that various things are not going to work with this until they are ready to start selling to the public.  You can not expect a program in beta testing to work with all periphial devices.

URGENT CALL:- Critical Error that keeps restarting system?


Definately not a "major issue"... it is a Software issue rather than a Hardware issue...
And most likely a conflict with your ActiveX controls...

Try This....
Go to Start...Programs......Windows Update..enable if disabled.. and it will search for updates and hopefully install the SP1 update...
This update download apparently has patches for the exact error you have and that is a typical Vista "hiccup" error....

try that, if it doesnt help still, we can go from there..
