    Is someone messing with m$ again?

    For the past day or so, my media player hasn't been able to connect with certain radio stations. It says that it couldn't connect with the server. Some of these stations I listen to all the time, and have never had a problem.
    Now I go to check my hotmail. Guess what.
    The server is too busy.
    So is some joker out there playing games again, or what?

    Did you check for spyware? Run Ad-aware and SpyBot and see if they find something.

    I don't suppose the server is where the current hurricane is is it?

    Try Spybot Search and Destroy. It's freeware.

    Yeah, I run spybot regularly. I don't think it's a firewall issue either. The odd thing is, some stations would work just fine, while others wouldn't. The error message I was getting said "couldn't connect to server" (I forgot the specific error code). I uninstalled mp9 and installed mp10 (yeah, maybe not a good idea to get the new version of anything M$) and it still didn't work.
    Today it does.
    Weird.
