Why cant I listen to online radio?

  1. I am running Windows Vista Ultimate SP1. Everytime i try to listen to radio on-line (i have tried several sites with no luck!) It will not start streaming. What happens is this......
    i click on the link to open the streaming radio (in this case. what happens is, in the status bar of the player it says 'connecting to media' for about 30 seconds, then the status bar goes back to 'Ready'.

    I am running McAfee Security center as my virus protection and firewall, could this be the problem?? Help!!
