first, sorry for waking up an old topic. but

Hope that helps!
there's an easier/better and most of all, safer way to achieve this.
as disabling UAC should be a big nono for everyone (even for the more experienced users).
and if possible, should NEVER be suggested for anyone (people tend to forget to enable it after)

a better way is, go to your winamp directory (program files/ or program files (x86) for 64bit users).
right click the skins folder, click properties, security tab, edit rights. give 'users/pcname' full rights.

done. This way you at least wont create a big security hole for just a skin
