Winamp suddenly started crashing

I'm using Winamp 5.666 build 3516. After ripping a bunch of CDs to my computer, I'm setting up playlists. I open the playlist window and click on the first song to clear the list for starting a new playlist. It plays the song, but Winamp stops responding. When I click on the playlist (or any other part of winamp, I get a message box:
"Winamp is not responding
If you close the program, you might lose information.
-Close the program
-Wait for the program to respond.

I've tried reloading Winamp over the old version. Didn't work.
I've removed Winamp from my system, rebooted, reinstalled, rebooted. Didn't work.

I hate Windows Media Player. I want my Winamp back. HELP!

two things
did you have a windows update? if so turn computer back to before update

did you also delete the winamp folder when reinstalling? if not you reinstall in the old folder on your computer.

My computer is very unhappy. It used to be my brothers mega gaming system. I rejigged it, putting the smallest disk as the main drive. It was probably the oldest disk and may be on it's last legs. Another disk, I was using for music, crashed and was replaced with an external drive. I've copied the video disk to another external. I think the main is going bad (it takes half a dozen to a dozen reboots before it starts up again. I've got a new hard drive but there is a lot of backing up to do before I redo the system. Any other suggestions.

Go into BIOS and load default settings, this might help if the computer (as a gaming system) has been overclocked. Also get some hardware monitor like HWiNFO and check voltages (if those are off -> new power supply) and temperatures (cleaning coolers/radiators might help there).
