Re: attacked by Winamp Update notice

Life is going on. I got it from our pal the giant file hippo. As opposed to 
the file rhino. All is well. But I hate when they do that to me.

Simply go to the winamp home page download the latest version and life will
go on.

Subject: attacked by Winamp Update notice

I'm using what until yesterday was the most current version of Winamp, I
think. Then today I clicked on an .mp3 file to listen to it. Winamp launched

and its window appeared onscreen (I'm partial and could see that). But what
Jaws announced wasn't the title of the track I was playing, but the words
Winamp Update. And although I was sure the Jaws focus was on the Winamp
function, I couldn't use any keyboard commands to pause or stop the play.

Now, I have a pretty logical suspicion that the way this is supposed to work

is that it wouldn't get in the way of someone with normal vision using a
mouse. They could ignore it if they wanted, or they could click on some
control to accept the download and installation of the upgrade. Easy as pie.

but I can't find any controls or links or anything, even scouting around
with the Jaws cursor.

Now, I think there are a lot of Winamp fans and users on this list, and I
have to guess that everyone has been through this kind of thing and knows
how to either just stop these events or, if so inclined, to take up the
invitation and permit the upgrade to be done right from there. Or maybe not,

but still by a simple operation.

Can anyone explain what to do? Thanks.
