It's pretty much all in the topic. I just got Macromedia Fireworks3 and for some reason winamp has associated itself with the Fireworks filetype (.png). how do I re associate this filetype with Fireworks3 and stop winamp reom associating itself with all other unknown filetypes?

try this:
go into Prefrences and click on "File Types."
if the box next to "enqueue as default action" is checked, click on it to uncheck it. that way when you play sounds that are not highlighted on winamp's "associated extensions" list, it will not open winamp.

if that doesn't work- then, uh... i dunno.

Wrong. "Enqueueas default action" doesn't have anything to do with it.
If "PNG" is in Winamp's list of file extensions (under Winamp Preferences/Setup/File types), click on it to un-highlight it. If that doesn't work, post here again.

But, PNG is Portable Network Graphics File and has got absolutely nothing to do with Winamp. It's not in my Winamp FileTypes list anyway.

Most confusing !

Just thought I'd post this . . . not that it helps much. I'm just confused as to how you actually solved the problem !
I was going to post a definite solution, but it would seem that there's no need to now ????????
Doh !

Thanks DJEgg. Well I guess that when I installed Macromedia Fireworks 3, Winamp detected the new filetype and associated itself with it. That would explain why you don't have it in your Winamp filetypes list. As to how I solved the problem...well I just de-selected the filetype in the filetypes list

As of version 1.7, that NiceMC plug-in apparently supports PNG, JPG, and GIF formats in addition to some video formats. Seems kinda weird, but that's what it says on their website.

Aharrrrrrrrrr . . . I see !
You never mentioned it was a plug-in related issue !?!

I've got loadsa PNG images on my HD, but I wouldn't dream of having them stuck somewhere in the middle of a Winamp playlist ?!?

MS Photo Ed and Irfan View will do just fine for me !
I think I've also got Real Player & Internet Explorer down as optional programs to open PNG's with too !

Anyway, the answer to your original question is:
1. Uncheck "Register FileTypes on Winamp Start" in "Prefs -> FileTypes"
2. Disable Winamp Agent [OPTIONAL]
3. Blank out the box in "Prefs -> Options" for "default extension for unknown filetypes" [usually mp3].

Laterzzzzzzzz

What's the reason for step #3?
Oh, and I forgot to clarify: JayDog, the problem had nothing to do with installing Macromedia Fireworks, but rather was presumably caused by having the NiceMC plug-in installed, which added PNG to the list of possible file extensions for Winamp to associate itself with, and this extension somehow got selected.
