Winamp installation freezes up

I tried to install Winamp twice (using 2 different install files) and every time I set it up to extract files and all that good stuff, it freezes and does nothing once it reaches "checking if internet is available" or something similar. I have to stop the application through the manager. Uhm... how can I get it to finish installation? I was able to install Winamp on this computer before, so it's not a hardware issue.

Help is appreciated

from what you are saying sounds like winamp is being blocked by a firewall
if you do not have a seperate firewall open the one built into windows and check the settings for winamp
if you have seperate security suite/firewall check its setting for winamp
other thing you can do during the setup (if you not using the internet part) is to tell it not to install online services(if you still cant get the program installed)

thanks rob
