Exclamation Windows Media Player Problem

I know i've made two topics in a row, and i'm sorry if thats against the rules here because I just thought you guys might be bored if it was too long. But anyways, on with my problem. I have a Windows 98 Computer and have a Windows Media Player 9. First off, I notice on other computers on WMP9, there is a homepage when you start the program where you can search for music/video streaming. Well, mine doesn't have that. And I also found out whatever site I go to to listen to music, there's always an error message saying that I should go online or close all browser windows or something like that. I know for sure I downloaded the WMP for Windows 98 SE which is what I have. So what exactly is the problem and what can I do to solve it? Any help would be appreciated.

Try to reinstall it. If all else fails upgrade to the new WMP 10
