    Yes I did see that before I posted, but they are using Win98 and I am using Win Xp Pro...Would the steps be the same for XP as Win 98

    The possible resolution is more OE based than operating system...so if you can find your .dbx, yes, it should work.

    But, as I think the answer states, when you do it, you might want to first rename the file so if you aren't happy with the result, you can always change it back.
