    Was there any kind of special software you had to install to listen besides the media players or was it directly from a website?

    I found this one off the web, try it and see if it works. It's an mp3 stream and uses Winamp. Just click the top left button:

    Went to that web site when i pushed on listen it comes up with a box that says file download, open ,save,cancel or more info. when i push open another box comes up that says Access to the specified device, path,or file denied. When I used to open the files it would go to either winamp or real player thats why i think not sure some thing is missing.

    It sounds like it could be related to file association with Winamp but try these steps first:

    Run Scandisk in case it's a corrupted FAT.

    Next go to Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Information.

    When it opens from the Tools menu do a repair of Internet Explorer.

    Post back if it solved the problem or not.
