    I am trying to delete the index dat. file from my wifes hp computer. After wading thru the usual cleaner ads I found a hint or to but not enough of a tech for some answer. I always get help on this site--hopefully you come through again.
    Thanks

    Why would you delete it?

    Index.dat Suite works pretty well if you really need to do it. It protects those index.dat files that would prevent the machine from running properly.

    And most of these just may mess up the machine more than it already is.
