Global Hotkeys error and message

Starting today those four hotkeys are not working. I checked Preferences and got what's in the image: X'ed key combos and error message on close. What's wrong and how to fix?

Usually the "Hotkey registration failed! Couldn't register the following hotkeys" issue may be caused by one or more for the following reasons
  • Two or more instances of Winamp are running
  • Another application with hot key settings, a hot key utility or a third party Winamp hotkey plug-in has registered the key options
  • If you have a multi-media keyboard, the MM key may have already been registered bu the keyboard's utility app. (usually effects media keyboard shortcut buttons play, stop etc.)
  • Something is preventing Winamp from saving settings correctly (read this and/or this)

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

Problem gone. I did nothing but to turn the PC off yesterday and on today... But:

- No, Winamp was running one sole instance
- I have none of the aforementioned software, except some old and ordinary keyboard shortcuts for things like charmap, calc, and the like
- No multimedia keyboard
- I tried most of the related tips TNA
