You're blaming Winamp for a 3rd party's mistakes.

Stop crying and enjoy the many other features that work like a charm.


By the way, an .avs file is not executable by windows. It only contains information that AVS uses (it's mainly a plain textfile, try opening one in notepad), so it cannot ruin your pc in any way.
Corrupted installers however, are another thing. But still they're 3rd party software, and thus not winamp's.
Frankly this is your fault. I repeat all people above me that you shouldn't be so naive.

Not true. If there were a way to inject code using an invalid .avs file, it could be used to attack your computer. It's certainly been a problem with Winamp's treatment of MP3s in the past. I don't believe there is such a problem with AVS, but this is why I was asking whether he was sure that it was a Winamp vulnerability - it's unlikely, but possible.

Everyone do the following right now (if you haven't already):[list=1][*]Open My Comp (or any Explorer window)[*]Goto Tools > Folder Options > View[*]Uncheck Hide extensions for known file types[/list=1] [/RANT]

That is all.

This is a sig of some nature.

S-uper_T-oast is having some issues lately.

Good Winamp plugins by Joonas, DrO and shaneh.
If you're bored go here or, if the boredom is more serious, here.
