Thread: Sticky Files ?

  1. #1
    Hi,
    I have been having a cleanout and have found an index.dat file
    in a hidden folder within internet temp files called "contents IE5"
    This file wont delete or edit even in safe mode , it says it is been used
    and to exit the program using it , what might be using it ? .
    Or if you open it in notepad and edit it then hit save it says it cant
    find its position and if you try to navagate to it its not there ?
    This file is now 2MB in size and growing and it holds a list of every
    Web site I have ever visited.
    Please someone how do I either get rid of it or empty it ?
