Timing timing :) You posted more info I see!
OK here try this... I got it from the AOL help channel:
1. Click the Start button, and then click Search.
2. If using Windows XP, under What do you want to search for?, click All files and folders.
3. In All or part of the file name: box, type SNMaster.idx. Click the Look in: drop-down box, and then select Local Hard Drives (C:).
4. Click the More advanced options menu to expand it, check the Search hidden files and folders box, and then click the Search button.
5. Select the SNMaster.idx file, click the Edit menu, and then click Copy.
6. Click the Address drop-down arrow, and then click (Local Disk C:).
7. Double-click the Documents and Settings folder.
8. Double-click the All Users folder.
9. Double-click the Application Data folder.
10. Double-click the AOL folder.
11. Double-click the C_AOL 9.5 folder.
Note: If there are multiple copies of the C_AOL 9.5 folder, double-click the folder with the later alphabet next to it. E.g.: If you have C_AOL 9.5a and C_AOL 9.5b, then C_AOL 9.5b is the folder that needs to be opened.
12. Right-click the idb
folder, then click Paste
Note: If you were receiving the message SNMaster.idx file is missing, you may simply launch the AOL® software at this point and should be able to sign on. If the AOL software installation was failing at 99%, continue to the next step.
13. Click the Back
button to navigate back to the C:\
14. Double-click the Program Files
15. Double-click the AOL 9.5
Note: If there are multiple copies of the AOL 9.5 folder, double-click the folder with the later alphabet next to it. E.g.: If you have AOL 9.5a and AOL 9.5b, then AOL 9.5b is the folder that needs to be opened.
16. Right-click the aol
icon, select Send to
, then click Desktop (create shortcut)
17. On the desktop, double-click the Shortcut to aol
icon to launch the AOL® software.
