    I've seen some screenshots u guys have posted with winamp controls integrated into the taskbar. So now for the inevitable question!

    How do you do it???

    One is Statbar. It will have the controls in a seperate bar with some other cool features.

    rename the original dll file to shplayer.dll.bak or something, then just put the new dll in the directory and reboot...

    If the DLL is in use Windows will not let you rename it or replace it. I point this out because wyrlwyn said...

    It did 4 me! Make sure ur not using the default shall player (from powertoys). Alternatively u could boot in safe mode and change the file that way.
