Skin problem

Hi all, this is my 1st time, I wouldnt know here if i do not meet this problem.
ok the problem goes on like this.
I have installed the winamp 2.81 version and it works well on my comp which running on a win98 OS.
However, when i tried to download more skins for it. Something actually crewed up by me myself. I downloaded the skins from winamp.com but it is supposed to just put it into the skins folder which is located in the winamp folder but instead of that, i clicked on it and trying to open with program(sorry, i am just a comp idiot). End up i was prompt to open with one of the programs which have been installed on my comp, i chosen winamp to open it.
As a result the skins actually do not works.
I was told by my friend that i m not supposed to run it and just need to put into that skins folder but the worse thing is i had chosen the "always open with this program" which made every skins i downloaded from web becomes open with winamp by default. I put them into the skins folder but when i try to change skins, i cant see them in my skins directory(preference->skins). So now no matter wat skin i download it just cant work.
what should i do now in order to solve this problem?
I had tried to reinstall winamp alredi..but it just end up with the same problem..please help...i do want to have pretty skins for my winamp like everyone here does..thanks!!
