The latest iteration of Mcafee Privacy Service prevents SoftSqueeze from running correctly. (The underlying culprit is McAfee's Proxy service)
Follow the steps below To correct this condition and resume your enjoyment of streamed softsqueeze music.

You can perform the following steps to stop McAfee Proxy Service.

1. Click on the Start > Run.
2. Type in SERVICES.MSC and click the OK button.
3. Locate 'McAfee Proxy Service' in the list.
4. Right-click 'McAfee Proxy Service' and choose Stop.

Now, you can try to access SoftSqueeze and see if you are able to access the music.
If you are able to access the music then you can start the McAfee Proxy Service service. (if required, it will probably restart after softsqueeze connects)

1. Click on the Start > Run.
2. Type in SERVICES.MSC and click the OK button.
3. Locate 'McAfee Proxy Service' in the list.
4. Right-click 'McAfee Proxy Service' and choose Start.

I hope this helps everyone. Enjoy.
