I record a lot of internet radio programmes to get me through the day but recently it's become impossible to stream internet radio as after a couple of minutes it stops and gives me an insufficient bandwidth error. Knowing my connection is slow I've been hounding my ISP as to why a I can't stream radio but they've been no help.
As a test, I rebuilt my old XP laptop with clean OS and it streams fine. Hour after hour without hitch.
Returning to my main windows 7 PC, I stopped everything I can find that may be hogging bandwidth (and I'm pretty certain I don't have any malware on it)but it still happens, does anybody know anything I can try to find the cause? Is there a monitor of some sort that can give me a breakdown of what's using my connection?
Any help would be greatly appreciated as working in silence is causing me to argue with myself - let's get it sorted before I turn nasty on myself.
