No you can't get a virus from a data stream such as audio or video. The site itself seems pretty clean. I'm no fan of the one player required to play the stream though. Real Player comes packed with more crap than anything I've ever seen, there's nothing "harmful" in the insallation just all the uneeded junk. not sure about winamp....

Thanks, I'm a bit skittish about some computer stuff since I'm pretty much a learn as you go user. I had some huge problems before. The guy on the 40LB site left it in his post & I had to peek. I liked the selections but chickened out for extended play time. It seems anything is possible when it comes to buggers. I was afraid to risk a crash. Thx so much, too bad I can't dowload some of your tech knowledge & store it for later like downloading off the net! :notworthy:
