I have 2 laptops one running XP with IE8 and the other running W7 with IE9 and both are fully updated.

With the XP machine I can any radio station I want to without any problems so I can listen online.

With the W7 machine there are one or two stations I can not get no matter what I try. I get an error message 403 (forbidden)..???

Both machine have Windows media player, are connected to the internet by wireless router (modem) & through the same ISP system.

Both are using the same search engine (google)

One of the FM radio stations in question that I listen to is my favourite and it is annoying to have to fire up my old XP machine to do so.

Any ideas please.

What station is it? Someone else with Windows 7 may want to see if he/she can tune in to it.

Hi there,

Try resetting your IE 9 settings (via Internet Options) and if that doesn't help, try reinstalling it.

Probably an incorrect setting or a missing component that is causing the problem.

BTW,

Are you able to downgrade to IE 8?

Is Internet Explorer actually your default browser? Maybe it's time you tried Chrome or Firefox.

Thanks RS I have tried resetting settings in IE9. Not particuarly interesting in downgraging to IE8 really as I am only having the problem with one radio station and since I downloaded Chrome, as I mentioned earlier in this thread, I can get the station so for now I will leave it be unless someone comes up with a fix, but as things stand now I doubt that they will. Anyway thanks again for your input.

It seems that you have incorrect settings for I.E.9 on your Windows7 -
I can still access the radio station on my laptop (Windows7 and I.E.9 installed), even now with no problem at all :huh: even while it is running on the battery

Best I can say is to check your I.E.9 settings, run your Antivirus, Disable any 3rd party Firewall, or reinstall I.E.9 -

Okay I checked all the settings in IE9 as per MS recommendations, no luck, removed & then reinstalled IE9 during which I had a couple of problems and still no go. Did a full scan for viruses and malware etc and nothing found, restored the laptop to a point way back and still no go. So reluctantly I did a full reformatt after saving lots of personal folders and heaps of photograhs etc and at last finally I was able to listen to Curtin FM 100.1....!!!! So much for W7...????? Cant beat XP...????

Thanks for you help here Noknojon I appreciated it.
