Shoutcast, Visualization not working


Shoutcast Radio and Shoutcast TV in the "Online Services", and Visualizations are not working. The Radio and TV display a brief message "Checking service version" but then the screen remains blank.

I have several radio stations saved in my Playlists section, and these individual stations work fine, no problem. The problem is in the Shoutcast Radio link in Online Services - used to bring up a browse/search screen.

Using Winamp 5.61 Pro, bought recently but I don't think that caused the problem :-)
XP Pro SP3, no Add-ons.
Have been using Winamp for many years without problem, and have converted several people over to it including my boss. Asus mobo with Core 2 Duo CPU, but I'm sure it's not a h/w related problem. Direct X 9.0c.
May well be something I've done to lock down Windows, as I'm techie.

Any suggestions?

Figured it out. I had tightened the security settings in Internet Explorer - never guessing this would break Winamp!

After some experimentation, turned out to be the Security tab - Internet zone - Scripting: Active Scripting which if disabled, breaks the Shoutcast browser among other things.
