MP3 and WMA files as URL:Winamp Command Handler

I searched here before posting, found some threads containing "URL:Winamp Command Handler", but none enlightened me about my problem.

I don't know when or why it started. MP3 and WMA files on my system were identified as MP3 and WMA files before, and now the Windows File Explorer's Type column lists them all as URL:Winamp Command Handler.

Why that happens and how to fix it?

I run Winamp v5.666 Build 35.16 (x86) on a Windows 10 Pro 20H2 19042.789 system. TIA.

Winamp 5.666 3516
Windows 10 Pro - 64-bit • Intel Core i7 • 12 GB RAM

BUG #1 = Winamp skips short tracks
Wish #1 = Multiple Column Sorting
Wish #2 = Add TCMP/Compilation editing
