You need to enable the "Mix" option. How this is enabled depends entirely on what sound card you have but the general census is:

Open up the Volume Control by double-clicking the speaker icon in the system tray by the clock (or alternatively, go to Start -> (All) Programs -> Accessories -> Entertainment -> Volume Control).

Then go to Options -> Properties -> Recording. Tick the box which says "Wave Out Mix" or "Mix" or something that involves the word Mix or is along the lines of listening to everything. Click OK.

Then put a tick in the Select box in the Mix volume control, do some recording and alter the volume if needs be.

Hello waynf!

When I want to record off a streaming file I record it with Goldwave.
