    Winamp didn't really "mess up" your file types, it simply did what it was trained to do...associate itself with all the available file extensions.
    Next time, right after you install Winamp, go to Options>Preferences>Setup>File Types and only check the extensions that you want WinAmp to play.

    You can also do this (for XP users) to make system-wide changes by going into:

    control panel>add or remove programs>set program access and defaults

    ...and then just configure which applications you want to open whichever file-types you wish.

    icons will automatically change when u reassociate the extensions.

    Open Media Player.

    Go to Tools and select Options.

    Click on the File Types tab, and check all the boxes you want associated with it.

    After that you should have the old-sytle icons back (you may need to reboot).
