    Just thought I'd Share the info in case anyone was having some issues. Winamp was failing to launch and AVG was picking it up as a Trojan Horse sheur which no info was available for.

    Found solution here http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20080930180342AAvoXyj

    Temporary solution (until AVG fixes their virus definitions):

    1. Re-install latest version of Winamp.( uncheck the open after setup closes box)

    2. Right-click AVG icon in lower-right corner of screen.

    3. Click Open AVG User Interface.

    4. Click the Tools menu, then click Advanced Settings.

    5. Click Exceptions under the Resident Shield section.

    6. Click Add Path.

    7. Navigate to C:\Program Files\Winamp (or the path where you've installed Winamp)

    8. Click OK.

    9. Click OK.

    10. Run Winamp."
