Information Required

The update screen uses Internet Explorer.
So possible reasons for it freezing are:

1) Broken IE installation
2) IE features disabled
3) IE blocked at firewall level
4) Malware present on system

If you can't get Winamp to open so you can get to:
Winamp -> Prefs -> General Preferences
and uncheck "Check for new versions at Winamp startup",
edit the following lines in winamp.ini

[Winamp]
newverchk=0
newverchk2=0

Depending on the type of installation (shared or separate settings per user),
the path to winamp.ini will be one of:
%AppData%\Winamp
or
%ProgramFiles%\Winamp

You can upgrade to the latest version via:
www.winamp.com/player
