There have been a few reported issues already concerning compatibility with newer Winamp versions and newer Windows versions.
AVS 2.81d was made in late 2006 and was but a small upgrade of 2.81b, which was made in late 2003/early 2004, about when Winamp 5 was introduced. The sourcecode is very fragile and although it is open sourced today, nobody has been able (yet) to make serious improvement. In a way, it's surprising that there haven't been any issues earlier.

One of the suggestions that have been posted, is to disable Aero when you're running Winamp.
Right-click winamp.exe and go to properties. Go to the compatibility tab and check 'Disable desktop composition' or something alike.

You could read some relevant threads on these forums, and try to mess around yourself. If you get it to work, and also if you don't, please keep us informed of your progress. Others who are reading this benefit from it as well.
