Shoutcast stations won't play

I've used Winamp and Shoutcast on many computers over the years and never had any trouble. However, I recently purchased a Lenovo Ideapad S340 laptop and now have a problem. Normally, when you click on the triangle to the left of a Shoutcast station you want to hear, it connects and begins to play. However, when I do that on my Lenovo, it tries to download a file called "tunein-station.pls" It asks me if I want to open or save the file. I've tried both choices but the station I select does not play. I've tried various searchs on the Winamp forums but can find nothing which seems relevant. I had version 5.8 installed. I uninstalled it and installed version 5.666 but it had no effect. Still won't load or play any station I try. I can copy and paste a Shoutcast station URL and Winamp works fine. Would appreciate any suggestions you might have.
Mike
