    when I try to listen to streaming audio and/or video, media player freezes in the connecting stage. It works when i play files of my hard drive but when I click on a link on a web site it freezes. I've tried uninstall/reinstall but it still doesn't work. I've looked on the microsoft web site and the only solution I could find was to uncheck the UDP protocol but that didn't work either. PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!!! THIS IS DRIVING ME CRAZY!!!!!!

    Hiya and welcome

    Which version are you using? Also, try a repair:

    Control Panel | AddRemove. doubleclick Microsoft Internet explorer. Choose Repair, apply and restart.

    Does this happen on All sites?
