    After cleaning index.dat cookie file with CC Cleaner the index dat was not recreated? Should it not be recreated by Windows

    windows does recreate it, maybe it's only after a reboot though, but probably not, did you try rebooting?. where is the index.dat you're talking about? are cookies and internet addresses still being stored? if you're using a certain program to view it maybe the program is wrong?

    you could see what happens when you run Index.dat Suite

    here's a program that says it "Displays the record number inside the cookies index file (index.dat)" it might show something, and should be a standalone none install program. i'm not sure it works with vista though!
