Windows Vista x64 and Winamp 100% CPU usage

I tried reading the other/locked thread for information but couldn't get any. After a lot of test tries, it seems that primosdk.dll has been causing it to hit 100% continuously. Deleting this DLL brought WinAmp back to normal CPU usage of under 5%. Hope this helps the OP in that thread.

WinAmp + Global hotkeys > Windows Media Player

Windows Vista x64 RC2

primodsk.dll is related to the Sonic engine (and removing it disables the Sonic engine I believe), and as noted in that thread the Sonic engine is not compatible with Vista (yet).
But thanks for the report

If you're bored go here or, if the boredom is more serious, here.
