AOL Radio Causes Winamp Crash

Winamp 5.61 crashes when I attempt to play an AOL Radio stream from Media Library. From what other users have reported, this bug is confined to systems running IE9 under Windows 7. Under Win7 it is not possible to roll-back to IE8.

When I click on an AOL station, I sometimes get a video commercial plays and items appear in the Playlist window. Then I get an error message: "Winamp has stopped working. Windows is checking for a solution to the problem. (Then) A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available."

I did have some AOL Radio streams saved as bookmarks and these will play properly. Shoutcast streams will play from the Media Library.

I did a clean reinstall and reinstalled Winamp 5.61 Pro (new download) with all default settings and no additional plug-ins.

Please include all relevant Winamp & System specs, including:
-A List of Plugins - No additional plugins - default at install only
-PC or Motherboard make/model - eMachines ET-1831-07
-CPU & RAM Pent Dual Core CPU E5400 @ 2.7 GHz 4.0 Gb RAM
-Sound card or chip RealTek Hi Definition Audio
-Videocard Nvidia GeForce 7050/nForce 620i
-Windows OS (including Service Pack, eg. WinXP sp2) Win 7 Premium 64 bit sp1
-DirectX version ver11
-Winamp version 5.61
-Confirmation of the Winamp installation type Pro
