ie7 and the bbc website
I notice there have been a few problems recently. When users, even admin right users, access the bbc radio 1 site for example, ie7 crashes.
Anyone else experienced this?

This sounds like my usual problems of getting exactly the right combination of versions of Flash, shockwave, realplayer, java and flying pigs. The flying pigs are the easiest to source.
I've actually got a stable combination and it's stayed that way for a few months now (Clutches wooden desk hard) It's always the BBC website that breaks when this happens
If you are using mandatory profiles, once you have found a stable combination, you will need to temporarily make the profile not mandatory and use the various products before converting it back to mandatory.

The BBC did (until recently) update their player and it did stop working for me. Thankfully, they've returned to the old one and it's working fine (as I am typing this).
XP SP3, IE7, MP11 and latest version of Flash 10.

There's a simple solution to the problem. Filtering companies are continually updating their database of websites to filter and probably charge for monthly/annual updates etc...
It would be far more logical and safer to block everything by default and only enable what schools want to allow. Problem solved.

hello, to listen to bbc radio, i would suggest using the site: BBC Radio
This site is much easier to use than any other one, and it has a full list of bbc radio channels that can be streamed from an iphone, mobile, or pc. This site has all bbc radio channels, in both real player, and windows media player streams.
