    Well, I dont think you can clear index.dat files with MRU blaster, if you're using, I use the program 'Spider' but I myself heard that Spider only works on win95/98 as for running invisible, I think Silent clean is as close as you can get, if you're not using WindowsXP (Not sure if it works on Windows2000 or ME) get it here: I use the version that allows for deletion..

    Hi all,

    I donated to MRU because I think it is a small but powerful program! :)

    Re: deleting the infamous index.dat with XP:
    If one has two user names with admin rights, one could log on to the other user name and delete index.dat

    Also, I am running XP Pro and Spider works on it. One should

    1. open spider
    2. click on preferences
    3. tick the "Complete HardDrive"
    4. tick your options
    5. click "accept"
    6. click "start search"
    7. click "clean up " <ambulance icon>
    8. click "accept"
    9. restart windows

    btw, I really like your nic, javacool! :cool:

    looks to me like javacool addresses your question on the MRU-Blaster home page...

    "MRU-Blaster integrated plug-ins provide support for additional on-disk cleaning tasks! Included are:
    -CookieBlaster (clean cookies except those you add to an exclude list)
    -IE Temporary Internet Files Cleaner
    With even more in development! All plug-ins provide secure file deletion, and both of the above plug-ins also clean the associated index.dat files that are locked during normal Windows usage (with secure file wiping)."
