im trying to stream an album off the net, but when i try to, i get an error message saying, "an error has occured in the script on this page...a problem has occurred in the digital rights management component. contact microsoft you want to continue running scripts on this page? y/n" i'm running windows xp, and on my other computer, which also runs xp, the stream works fine. i've searched hours on the microsoft website to no avail. i've tried uninstalling/reintalling, and updating wmp and still the same problem. what do i do? btw, im trying to stream the killers album off the mtv website if that info helps at all.

Try downloading this update...

I'm not sure why, but this DRM update has never been found by Windows Update for me, so I must download and install it manually each time I repair/reinstall Windows XP. It's required by music utilizing more recent versions of DRM, so t's a likely culprit and worth a shot.

Hope this helps,

maybe i did it wrong, but i downloaded and ran it and nothing seem to happened. it went through the whole installation process, but when it was done, nothing seemed to have changed. do i need to do anything or go somewhere to activate it after installing?
