Just to add...

Note that this is now expected behaviour.

It was actually broken in 5.531 and earlier.

If some other app has stolen any file associations from Winamp's associated filetypes list, then Winamp will restore them on startup when that option is checkmarked. For it to do this, it needs to write to the registry, and therefore requires permission from UAC.

In 5.531 and earlier, stolen associations wouldn't be restored, because the elevation feature wasn't even implemented.
