There are different files with the same name:
- "Taskmon driver" definitely not required.
- "Win l5oahder" definitely not required. Added by the SPYBOTER.GEN VIRUS! Not the valid Winamp Agent which uses the same filename. This resides in the System32 sub-folder wheras real one is located in the winamp folder
- "Winampa" can run at start up. Loads the System Tray icon for the WinAmp media player. Can be used to mantain file associations so programs like QuickTime and RealPlayer don't take over as default player for various media types. Available via Start → Programs
