Hi I tried out winamp3 and when I removed it it left its icons and every time I go to play a file thet it used to my computer looks for studio.exe (winamp3). Now i know i can change the file assosiation to another program but thats no good I want to remove winamp as whenever i change back to another program or delete a program it goes back to winamp.

also any suggestions for a player that only plays cds and mp3s without all that extra resource hogging crap that i don't want when just listerning to music.

ta;)

Your answer is Winamp v2.81 (not Winamp3 v1.0)
Trust me ;)


Winamp3 v1.0 was basically a rush release
AOL-TW (Nullsoft proprieters) gave Nullsoft a deadline and forced them to release it ahead of schedule. In effect, it's still a buggy beta, although there's been official patches and further internal dev builds released since.

btw, if you'd gone to Winamp3 -> Prefs -> Media
and unselected everything, the problem wouldn't have happened.
Or just go to: Windows Media Player -> Tools -> Options -> File Types/Formats
and reassociate everything there


Winamp 2.81 is still the best all-round music player
and is very light on reources/memory.
If you do decide to go for it, after installation, close it, then install this official patch which contains all the latest versions of the default input/output plugins.

And, if all you want it to play is CD's and MP3's, make sure to tell it so during setup.
(It also supports: WAV, MIDI, MOD, OGG)
