the problem with your a/c is that around once every other week or so you should run your a/c for at least 5 to 10 minutes to let the seals in your a/c compressor reseat themselves while the compressor is running.
the smell you are getting now is most likely mildew or some other type fungus that was growing in your a/c ducts.
you might get away with having your a/c compressor evacuated down and recharged.
it will be cheaper than a new compressor.

i also think your ac can be repaired. if your warranty "just" expired, your dealer might run it through for you.
