I found another thread and checked the registry under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\Layers and there was indeed the "ELEVATECREATEPROCESS" setting set for key C:\Program Files (x86)\Winamp\winamp.exe

So the problem is not with Winamp, but with Windows 7 in that it doesn't show that compatibility mode is active.
