You can do several thing to fix this.
In AOL, right click the AOL icon in the taskbar at the right hand corner of near the clock, then click on System Information. When it opens...it takes a few seconds...click on the Utilities tab at the top of the page. Click on the Quick Restore button at the bottom of the page. Click on Procedd, then follow any on-screen instructions after that.
If you donot have the AOL tray icon, click on Start, Programs and look for America Online (no version number next to it). Click on AOL System Information in the sub-menu.
In versions of AOL before 9.5:
Go to My Computer
Double-click the C: drive
Double-click on Program Files
Double-click on America Online X.0
((Note): If you have several installations of AOL, open the latest installation file, i.e., 9.0, 8.0, 8.0a, etc. 8.0a if the latest installation.)
Doulbe-click on the Backup folder
Right-click on main (or main.idx)
Left-click on COPY
Click the BACK arrow in the upper left hand corner of the window
Right-click on the IDB folder
Left-click on PASTE
Answer YES to the question.
After that is done,
scroll down on the page and fine the COMPVER file.
Right-click on it, then left-click on DELETE.
Answer YES to send it to the Recycle Bin.
If the above two procedures do not work, uninstall all AOL from the computer, then reinstall it.
If you are still getting this message after uninstalling ALL of AOL from your system, there might be some corrupt files from AOL still left there. After uninstalling and BEFORE reinstalling, look in your Program Files folder for any America Online folders that may be left there. IF any are there, delete them.
*If you have AOL 9.5 , also look for America Online in the following path:
*Windows (for Windows 98/ME)
*Documents and Settings (for Windows 2000/XP)
(for Win2000/XP, you may not see this folder. It is hidden. In the menu bar at the top of the screen, click on Tools, Folder Options, click on the View tab, in the Advanced Settings window, Hidden Files and Folders section, select Show Hidden Files and Folders, click Apply, then click OK. Double the Application Data folder.)
If you see any C_America Online folders, delete them.
Reboot the computer, then reinstall AOL.--
