Winamp 5.54 + Vista = UAC shows up at start, annoying...

Hi guys,

I notice something horrible since the lastest update :
now I see the UAC popup each time I launch Winamp.
This was not happenning before on my Vista system.

First I was kind of afraid, so i click 'cancel', but winamp was still launch in background and playing (i'm using a plugin to play automatically from last time...), wtf?
So what was the uac popup for ?
I'm a dev so i figure it out, but it could be disturbing for an average user...

I manage to figure out from where that was comming : it is because winamp is checking for updates at start-up (option in general preferences...).
I desactivate that because having the popup at each winamp start is annoying, but I really hope dev. are going to fix that!

Thanks bye bye,

a french guy
