the recommended build (and plug-in updates) is what is linked to in my signature and all of the main sticky threads (and the news thread in this sub-forum).

There are no viruses in Winamp 5.666
http://forums.winamp.com/showthread.php?t=373755

Where are you downloading it from?
Is it definitely winamp5666_full_all.exe or winamp5666_full_en_us.exe (etc) that you are downloading?

If yes, then you should report the false-positive to your AV provider.

from the post incorrectly put in the bug reports thread, this has started happening for babboo in the last few days - so probably a bad definition update in the anti-virus being used.

And what about from the link in 5.666 released thread?
http://forums.winamp.com/showthread.php?t=373755

As for the post by Winamp Love, the only download link provided is via filehippo
http://oi61.tinypic.com/x114k9.jpg

Clicking the big green "download latest version" button should automatically download winamp_5666_full_all.exe which is virus-free.

What's your Windows OS?

If Windows 7, Vista, or XP, just run the DirectX Web Updater
which will install any missing but required components
http://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/downl...ils.aspx?id=35

Basically, Milkdrop vis requires d3dx9_42.dll to be present in the system dir
(and the fullscreen video OSD requires d3dx9_31.dll)

If missing, the Winamp installer is supposed to try download & install them,
but it's probably best to just run the official Microsoft DX updater anyway.

Which DX installer gives that error from your AV? The Microsoft one or the one on download.nullsoft.com?
You don't need to run the Nullsoft one if you've already run the official Microsoft DX web updater.
However, there's no viruses in either (not at the source, anyway), so you should report the false-positive to the AV vendor/developer.
If there is a virus in one of them, then it's come from something else already on your system...
