Winamp freezes dragging down the whole system

Hello everyone! I'm using the latest version of winamp and already uninstalled and reinstalled, also tried a bit earlier version but to no avail.

Here's the problem: When I play songs from a big playlist, sometimes a few songs (most likelly the folder) has been moved and I haven`t updated the list. I used to run winamp on windows XP, the program would simply skip the tracks that weren't on the hard drive and jump to the next until a song was actually found.
This proccess could be stopped at any time and I could actually see the skipping happening on the playlist, no problems there.

On windows 7 64 though, whenever that happens, winamp just freezes, the computer is brought down to it's knees and I can't even open task manager to kill winamp. I have to reboot using the reset button.

Is there anyone experiencing the same problem?

Obviously it's not my rig. I'm running a C2D 8400 with 6gig ram and fast hard drives with optimal partitions for performance.

Thanks for all the help you guys can spare in this case!
