How do I get this shit off my computer?

First of all, sorry if this is in the wrong forum. I didnt know if I should post this here, or in the plugins forum.

I recently installed a plugin to control winamp with my keyboard. I installed it. It didnt work. Now when I open winamp, I get a stupid missing file-error from the plugin. I cant find the dll, and cant figure out how to get rid of the fucking error. I dont want winamp to error every time I open it.

This is the plugin I installed: http://www.winamp.com/plugins/details.php?id=50356

Thanks for any help

Is there a gen_mmk.dll file in the "Plugins" subdirectory of your Winamp installation directory? Remove it.

There may also be a mediakey.vxd in the system32 subdirectory under your Windows installation directory. Remove that also.

hf - i think winamp closes as soon as it opens because of the error. I may be wrong though...

I cant find it. There are no suspicious plugins... I know what each of them does.

It works very well with windows me & winamp 2.79. However, I recently moved to windoze XP, & it gave me a mediakey.vxd not found error when starting winamp 2.81
Could the mediakey.vxd have been installed in the wrong directory?

Edit: too late...

Install Winamp 5.x again, and use the global hotkeys. That's a better built-in plugin. Just a very useful suggestion IMHO.

See what I'm listening too.
