I recently located two new registry entries
code:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Applications\winamp.exe\DefaultIcon]
@="C:\\ICONS\\file WV.ico,0"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Applications\winamp.exe\DefaultIcon]
@="C:\\\\ICONS\\file WV.ico,0"


But removing them apparently changed nothing. Even the WV stayed the same, i.e. displaying the icon I choose for it and not reverting to using the default Winamp icon [which is used by for example MIDI and OGG]. And also this question arises: how did Winamp display that default icon if it was set to be my "file WV.ico" and how it is displaying now anything if those two entries are absent?
