I have never seen that error. What do you have for third party Winamp plug-ins (if any)? Are you on a limited/multi user account?

Please do not PM me for tech support. Any request for tech support through PM will be ignored.

If you are not sure that you are on a limited user account, chances are you are not on one. When Windows starts, are you given a list of user names to log on with? Any user name that is not Administrator is a multi/limited user account.

Try a full uninstall > reinstall (AKA clean install) of Winamp. Usually a clean install of Winamp is the "cure all" for odd problems.

If you are still having troubles...

You can provide us with a list of your plug-ins by...

Just install this, open Winamp and head to Preferences > Plug-ins > General > One for Nunz > Configure selected plugin and check "Generate text file of all installed plugins." You may also want to check "Open text file once generated". The file is located in winamp_directory\plugins as my_plugin_list.txt.
Also provide a Hijack This log. Instructions and download links for HjT can be found here. It may be awhile before one of us has a chance to evaluate the HjT log and make the proper recommendations. Hopefully it will be our HjT expert, DJ Egg.

OK not very good at this .. Yes I did not understand what you mean "multi user" now I do we have 5 people who share this computer all with there own user name,so yes multi user. I already uninstalled and reinstalled Winamp but not difference.i am unable to locate the plugins in winamp to get a text file. No folder in winamp shows "You may also want to check "Open text file once generated". The file is located in winamp_directory\plugins as my_plugin_list.txt".Also open Winamp and head to Preferences > Plug-ins > General > One for Nunz > Configure selected plugin and check "Generate text file of all installed plugins." unable to see anything to generate text file ? This seems to be my inexperience?
thanks for your patience

Winamp does not do well on user (non-administrator) accounts. The link in the first reply lists several workarounds for using Winamp on limited/user accounts. The link comes from the Troubleshooters Sticky. Here is the list of the workarounds...
Limited Multi-User profile issues (note: native multi-user profile support is being worked on)

Try the "new Multiuser plugin" link first.

As for the "One for Nunz". That is a separate plug-ins that does not come with the install of Winamp. A download link for One for Nunz is in the quote.

It is night time in my part of the world so I am going to "sign off" for now and check back at this thread some time tomorrow. If anyone else would like to step-in to provide further help or assistance, please feel free to do so. Untill then...
