The above link should work.  If not here's another good discussion on the problem that may provide useful.

Hello All,

I had the same issue and I am sure others will be by here. The main thing that prevents that "renaming" from working is that hidden files (hidden folders, etc) are not visable in XP and Vista.

To make these visiable - do this:

Click on start, goto control panel, open then click on folder options,        
Open folder options, then click on view,        
Then scroll down to hidden files and folders, click to show hidden files and folders, click OK.  Then close it out.

Next - follow these steps:

(see posting #15 about half way down the page):

Hope this helps,
Kevin
