    :confused: Here is my problem:

    My IE closes (also Mozilla or Opera) any time I try to run streaming media.

    I have done the following:

    Tried other media players and associated them with the browsers.
    Took out Media player 10 and reinstalled it
    Took IE back to 5 then to 6 and 6 sp1
    Cleaned my registry
    Ran Hijack this
    Ran TDS-3 trojan search
    Ran Ad Aware, SpyBot and Virus checks

    All to no avail.

    One strange side symptom that occured when this started to happen:

    My calculator dissappeared out of my Prgrams/Accessories.

    Any help would be welcome.
