Skins errors

Well i am new just wantwed to leave a post i read what was said to do first check all those great places for answers and so i did - i found nothing about my problem. I am using 5.2 the new one and it is a fresh install
specs:
amd 2400+
windows xp sp2
1.25gb ram
i forget what else to include with that but i upgraded i have pro and for some reason now that i try to change the skin no matter it be old or new it crashes winamp and the only way for me to put a new skin is if i make sure the program is closed and then dl'd it then run it and then it works.
Any suggestion on what the problem might be and what i may need to fix it?

Are you trying to load modern skins, or classic skins?

If modern, try the following...
Close Winamp, open Windows Explorer, go to C:\Program Files\Winamp and delete the file studio.xnf.
This will reset all modern skin settings and often fixes things.

If that doesn't help...
Are you using any 3rd-party plugins? They may conflict with modern skins.
Do you get any error messages? If so, please post them here.

Classic skins mostly are what i have, i have a couple of modern but i am usually trying to switch to classic skins, for plug-ins i have - tomsteady audio filter, nullsoft moder skins support, nullsoft global keys, jump to file extra, nullsoft winamp library, nullsoft tray control, mytrillianstatus, wap server winamp2, winamp ipod support, online services, portable music player support, transcoder, ml_xpdxs

these are all the ones listed in my preferences.

the error message comes after windows closes winam and just says it must be closed cause it has caused errors

if you can see if any of them are crooked let me know

Do you get any error messages?
In the error box it often says something like
"To see what data this report contains, click here", which brings you something like this:
AppName: winamp.exe AppVer: *.*.*.* ModName: ******
ModVer: ******* Offset: ********


If so, please post here what you find.

It's possible (or even likely) that one of your plugins is causing the problem. The error message may show which one.

So this is a clean install of Winamp?

Are you using any desktop enhancing utilities?
Could you post a HijackThis log?
