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

I cannot find a dl of aol 9.0 (non_vr) anywhere, everybody has moved over to the 9.0 vr installer package it seems, although i did find a 9.0 disc of my own, but opening opening it up & checking the files, i did not see a aol phx file???

When ransomware hits your clients, what do you do?

MSPs: Endpoint security isn’t enough to prevent ransomware.
As the impact and severity of crypto ransomware attacks has grown, Webroot has fought back, not just by building a next-gen endpoint solution capable of preventing ransomware attacks but also by being a thought leader.

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
