    .The index.dat file can only be deleted in DOS and are included in your cleanup using the DELTREE command.

    I suggest you go here for step by step instrusctions.

    Hey: Adore, thanks for the links, I am now in the process of building a DOS toolkit. But, once again how do I open the index.dat file and where else does IE store surf data?
    in DOS (dir index.dat?) or something like that?

    jiffyprogasm, the basic DOS command to show the contents of a file is type.

    type index.dat will do the trick. edit index.dat is the same, but with a GUI...
    Also check out debug index.dat. At the command line, type d to dump the file contents on screen. (Repeat as often as necessary ).

    I don't know why you want to 'open' index.dat in DOS, though... Using Wordpad in Windows will get you exactly the same...

    Last but not least: one of the AO-members (Markus Jannson) has some info on his site about index.dat: http://www.markusjansson.net/eienbid.html

    Excellent post negative: I never realized that the wordpad would open the index.dat. I continue to learn at every visit to the site, thanks AO's
