Hi and welcome

have you lokoked in event viewer (type event vwr in search) go to the wondows log>application tab. Look for errors (ref in left column) theat have app hang, app crash, or winamp in tehm. they will be there when you find them note the event ID and source codes and let us know what they are.\

Let us know if you need help with any of this

Thanks for the replay .. I looked for error in Event viewer but didn't find any. The actual behavior is it sits in the Task bar won't open but it Processes the Memory usage is kinda of dtable like 24,234 K doesn't change from that. The program doesn't say non-responding I tried to uninstall and reinstall couple of times and checked in different Windows Profile

are you using a Winamp skin with a .wal extension by any chance? Just wondering because I got some errors in Windows 7 with .wal skins that I didn't get with .wsz skins. I never got to the bottom of it but it seemed to have something to do with skin scripting or something. It's just one thing you can try to see if it starts working.

I'm having the same problem. It opens but after that it freezes so I can't even use it and nothing i see can fix it. Just something more going wrong with windows 7 making me wanta go back to XP now.

Did you try any of the other fixes? are you running a .wal theme with it?

Yes it does work, been using it since the RC of Win 7 (and have it playing right now). Also just came across this plugin that allows it to work with Aero Peek,
