Windows 7: Unable to Find Problem Playing Audio From Employer Test Site

Unable to Find Problem Playing Audio From Employer Test Site

Somehow my Win7 configuration is unable to play an audio stream from a website that does preliminary testing of job applicants.

It appears to require a working QuickTime installation. Additionally it appears to require Java too. Technical support has indicated configurations for two browsers (IE, Firefox).

In IE:
* Tools->Options->Advanced->Multimedia->Play sounds in webpages [checked]
* Tools->Options->Security->Custom Level->Miscellaneous->Access data sources across domains [Enable]
* Tools->Options->Privacy->Turn on Popup Blocker [Unchecked]
* Tools->Options->General->Delete->temp internet files
Did not work
Removed all Java installations. Reinstall latest-->didn't work

Latest audio driver updates --> didnt work

Applied multiple Microsoft FixIt files related to audio stuff --> didnt work

I tried in Firefox, allowing any plugin to operate --> didn't work

In a family member's Win8.1 installation, it worked in IE without doing anything extraordinary. So it's not the website's problem.

What haven't I checked to get the sound playing using this tool?

If the audio works on everything else, its not an "audio" problem its an application problem. Antivirus may be blocking it - one possibility. Firewall in PC another. Posting in a different forum section for applications or browsers or security would be a more appropriate place to seek help.
