Problem Playing Tuning into Stations On Shoutcast

Every time I click on the tune in button for a station on shoutcast a window comes up that says the following:
"Do you want to open or save this file" it also says:
Name: shoutcast-playist.pls
Type: Audio playist
From: www.shoutcast.com

when i select open it brings up another window that has a list of programs for me to select to open the file. Winamp is not in the list of selections and when I try to select winamp nothing happens.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

1. Winamp > Ctrl+P (for Preferences)
2. General Preferences > File Types
3. make sure PLS is highlighted/selected, you may want to do the same for M3U and M3U8
4. checkmark 'Restore file associations at Winamp start-up'
5. close out of Prefs > close and restart Winamp.
Although it is not necessary, I would also suggest to close Winamp, Windows and restart/reboot the computer.

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