Hey Experts!!

I have a client who installed WP on ReadyHosting's Windows server plan. The problem I'm having is that if you go to the domain it throws, index.php into the URL. (example:http://mydomain.com/index.php = Home page).  After I make the permalinks correct(/%postname%/), the site just dies.

I've read everywhere that if you have access to install scripts you can download a filter to re-write.  However, I don't have access to the server to do that and I've searched Google up and down and I can't find anything that will help.

So let's assume I can't move to a Linux server and I don't have access to install any additional scripts.  What can I DO???
