Try Traders Little Helper. I use it all the time. Not for mp3's, but for encoding and decoding Flac and Shorten.
It's very reliable.

You may have to decode the Flac to .Wav first, then convert the .Wav mp3.

Hey Billy, I got it to work but the program is only a 30 days trial. Do you have any other free one?

Hello again, huMAC

MP3 programs cannot be (legally) downloaded for free in the United States, because even if you use a free encoder, Fraunhofer Society IIS owns a patent on MP3. The $$$ for DBPowerAmp covers the license fees.
See here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mp3#Licensing_and_patent_issues

Foobar2k does the job though, its just much less feature rich than dbPowerAmp Music Converter. (Foobar2k's servers are not in the US :thumbsup:)

Winamp's mp3 plugin is NOT FREE. See here:
http://www.winamp.com/player/features

Good luck!

he' s right, but you could output flac to wav with winamp and then convert wav to mp3 with cd-extractor, not your one click setup
