I've got the same problem. Kernel crashes on exit of Winamp and I have to reboot to regain control of the system. Here's my configuration:
Winamp 2.64
Win98 (Not SE)
mpg123.dll used instead of Nitrane
WOW plugin

This system is only being used for MP3 playing - so i've got MusicMatch jukebox and WMP 7b on there too. 2.63 never gave my any problems - I'll go back to it until I can figure out what's wrong with 2.64 or my system.

i don't know what's causing your crashes, but i can tell you that the ONLY difference between 2.63 and 2.64 was that the dsp plug-ins were fixed. (wow couldn't run with 2.63)

try turning off all plug-ins, and using nitrane and see if you still have the problem.

This has started to surface on another machine I work with as well, when you exit Winamp, it just crashes. The system is running win98, I am still using 2.62 on my personal machine, waiting for the smoke to clear.

Just for the record, I think that it's annoying that the buffer box was removed for the streaming ascpect of Winamp, is there an option to re-enable it, or am I going to have to stick with this older version to keep it.

winamp usually crashes on my machine (win95) when exiting, but sometimes it doesn't. reinstalling worked for a while but now it crashes again as much as ever.

I know 2 or 3 other people who also experience this problem. i love winamp, please make it love me too

Use the search facility [top right of page, below : post a reply/new topic]
Type in "kernel32" and search all forums.
I just did this and it came up with about 20+ threads relating to this problem.

Kernel32.DLL is the main Windows core component, akin to the brain.

I've a sneaky feeling that this problem is caused by using "dodgy" or slightly incompatible Non Nullsoft third party plug-ins [DSP-FX / Vis / General Purpose].
Have you installed any new ones recently ?
Try disabling them in the Winamp Prefs and try again !
To disable Gen. Purpose plug-ins, move the relevant DLL out of the Winamp Plugins folder.

Check the plugin.ini file [with Notepad] in this same folder and remove any reference to uninstalled plug-ins.

Other options are to :
1. Exit Winamp and delete the Winamp.ini file in the Winamp Folder.
This will restore all the default settings next time you open Winamp.
[You can back your old .ini file up first if you want, just in case].

2. Backup all your extra downloaded skins & plug-ins, saved EQ Presets [Q1 / Q2 / EQF Files] & the Bookmark list [winamp.bm], and uninstall Winamp.
Re-install the latest version and move your backup plug-ins back in one by one.
Open & close Winamp inbetween each move.
At the first sign of this error message reappearing, you can bet your life that the last plug-in you re-installed will be the guilty party !

When you've finished, goto : Prefs -> Plugins
Click "Flush plugin name cache" button.
This removes any reference to uninstalled plugins from the winamp.pic file
