I found what seems to be a really good internet radio station,
After selecting a genre of music, and then selecting a station or, more directly, a "Listen Now" link, all seems to go well -- a secondary window pops up, but after about six seconds a third window pops up -- MS IE window stating "Microsoft Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience." I've never, ever encountered this before (previously, only for Windows).
I contacted the station describing the problem, and their initial reply (they may provide further solution suggestions) was that it seemed as though I was blocking ActiveXcontrols. Well, I thought maybe I might be, so I checked my IE Security settings. I did have "Customised" settings, so for all four basic componets (Internet, Local Intranet, Trusted Site, and Restricted Sites) I reset them to their Default settings. I also went to my Norton Internet Security 2003, Personal Firewall, and ensured that that was set at Medium level, which allows "ActiveX controls and Java applets run without warning."
None of this had enabled me to access any music -- still get cut off. The Radio rep said that I should have initially gotten a window wanting to download a program (?) to enable me to listen to the music. So, I'm really not sure if that first window (entirely blank inside when it first comes up) is this request to allow this listening program ("Aurora" I think...?) (probably) or something related to the music stream itself.
I've run out of ideas. If anyone has an idea why IE stops me cold and how to correct the problem, I'd appreciate any/all suggestions. Try visiting the radio station. It's worth checking out anyway. Thanks.
