URGENT POST: Radio Stream not working with Vista now? Please help
Hi there Please Please help me with this issue as its affecting my job!
Im using Vista Home Basic on a Toshiba laptop, AOL is my ISP and Macafee is my viral software - and for some reason the radio broadcast that I listen to on the William Hill website (here in the UK) 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 - so this is NOT a soundcard or volume problem - its a software connection issue.
Something I feel needs to be checked, unchecked, enabled or disabled somwehere and is something probably simple and silly - but its driving me to dispair. the radio stream Im refering to, works perfectly on other XP laptops and on my stand alone system that has XP on it .. but not on this work laptop with Vista on it (but only until recently).
The weekend though, it did do one of its famous system updates and since then a few things went haywire, the clock and date had to be adjusted (I discovered this cause windows live messenger wouldnt work, but its 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

Windows Vista installation failure
On some Windows Vista systems Flash Player may be installed, but will not display Flash content. In some cases updating to the latest Flash Player using the included utility can correct the User Account Control settings that cause this problem.
To run the utility, find your installed Flash folder:
Right-click C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash\FlashUtil9d.exe The letter changes with each Flash version, so may be "FlashUtilb.exe" or "FlashUtile.exe"
Select "Run as Administrator"
Follow the steps to complete the Flash Player installation

You can try these and if they do not work, I can only suggest that you get on your support site and chat with a technician to see if they have windows 7 drivers for your notebook that are not posted on their support site.
I think you might need to be on an account with administrative rights to complete that kind of change on a Vista system...Make sure you are logged on that way to begin with if possible...
When you don't have administrative rights, you can't set up programs that affect other users.
Here is a troubleshooter that might help you resolve this Vista network connections
and Troubleshoot Internet Connections
Also, you might take a look in your Device Manager and see that your modem is enabled and working properly.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread. If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!
Definately not a "major issue"... it is a Software issue rather than a Hardware issue...
And most likely a conflict with your ActiveX controls...
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..
ok,you had checked all the ways so the first thing is sound is not installed properly or not working properly in your laptop. So you have check the laptop sound in the sound properties in the control panel. i tell the steps
