Default How to get rid of Winamp

I didn't ask for it, and I certainly don't want it.

I'm not aware of Winamp installing itself.
It's actually one of the better players out there, very versatile.

To uninstall software, there is usually a software available in the program directory. Otherwise, I mostly often use
MyUninsrtaller :
MyUninstaller: Alternative to the standard Windows Add / Remove module
and Ccleaner :
CCleaner - Home

I once installed WinAmp, did not like its functionality at all and completely removed it.

I loved using Winamp, until version 3 or so...once AOL bought Nullsoft, the program got way too bloated.

Foobar is what Winamp was like back in version 2, with even more functionality

I agree with you, Foobar2000 is a great app, very lean and easy on system resources.
It has been that way for many years, and is my favorite player.
It also lets you convert files to different formats which is handy.
Winamp definitely has become way too bloated, same as adobe reader and many other "popular" apps.
I prefer to look for good open source alternatives myself, there are plenty of good offerings out there, and sourceforge.net is a great place to start.

Version 3 was indeed bloated as hell. Luckily in version 5 they re-introduced a "Classic" mode. If you choose classic mode on installation, you basically get a Winamp 2 minus bugs and so on. It's very lean.
