One way to remove it is to go into the registry editor and remove all mentions of winamp from there.

Go to start, run and type regedit.

But be very careful - any mistake there could be costly.

Registry Key to remove right click context items:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers

Click the the + sign next to the ContextMenuHandlers key, to expand it.

Now you will see some of the programs that have added items to your right-click menu.
Simply delete the program keys you don't want.

it is not listed in the directory you say Jester2K II

Hmmm - then you'll need to use the search to find all WinAmp References and delete manually.
