hope that the drastic action you propose to take has the desired effect.  I 
notice that you are 
trying to run the Accessibl BBCiplayer in Webbie 3.7.4 on a Vista machine.   I 
have it running 
perfectly well on both XP and Vista machines so that I don't think that the OS 
is your problem 
with this particular application.

It had occurred to me earlier that you might like to try the portable version 
of Webbie 
(available from http://download.webbie.org.uk)   You simply unzip it to a 
sutable folder and 
run the appropriate exe file, but I now find that the latest version of the 
portable Webbie  is 
earlier than 3.7.4 and consequently does not contain the Accessibl bBCiplayer 
Listen Again.  
So that would not help I am afraid.
