Encoding streamed media

I am wanting to capture streamed audio into a file. On my XP machine I was able to do this using Microsoft WM Encoder 9. I am now working on a laptop with Vista Home Edition and WM Encode generates errors. Can anybody recommend a free alternative to WM Encoder that will run on a Vista machine?
Thanks,
Chris.

Re: Encoding streamed media

Have you tried google - M$ say "You may experience issues when you use Windows Media Encoder 9 Series on a computer that is running Windows Vista".
There is a patch on their site.
