    Hi Susie,

    Did you have a special reason for posting that question in this forum?
    In other words do you suspect those files are related to any Javacool programs?

    I found lots of possibilities here: http://filext.com/alphalist.php?extstart=%5EI   
    IDX   ArcView Geocoding Index For Read-Only Datasets (ESRI)   
    IDX   Clip Gallery 1.x Index (Microsoft)   
    IDX   Corel QuickFinder Information    
    IDX   FAX File    
    IDX   FoxPro Index (Microsoft)   
    IDX   ICQ Index (ICQ Inc.)   
    IDX   Index    
    IDX   Pro/ENGINEER Index File (PTC)   
    IDX   LaTeX Index    
    IDX   Outlook Express Mailbox Index (Microsoft)   
    IDX   Stork Format Header Information    
    IDX   Symantec Q&A Relational Database Index File    
    IDX   AOL Temporary Internet Mail File    
    IDX   Complete Works Index File (Toplevel Computing)   
    IDX   NoX

    Regards,

    Hi Pieter,

    Actually I have asked this question in many forums and never received an answer, thought I would try here as well. All of a sudden, out of the blue, I had hundreds of .idx files that showed up in My Documents. I see several other people have had the same thing happen, however, there are never any responses to the question. Any idea how they got there or how to remove them?

    Thanks!

    Hi sarena,

    Could you mail me an example?
    Send it to the address in my profile. I'll have alook and see what I can find out.

    This thread will be moved to the Software & Services forum.

    Regards,

    Pieter
