    Anyone ever try this free program and know if it's any good? (Index.dat viewer v 2.1) It is supposed to allow you to view the index.dat files in Windows internet history ect... under examination - Pieter

    Hi diasterzone,

    I would not recommend using that program.

    See the screenshot to see what happened when I ran it.

    Regards,

    I used this 'Spider' program to view/delete the index.dat files when I still used IE. It worked like a charm.

    I use IEClean to clean this kind of things.
    For Netscape, Mozilla etc there is its brother NSClean.

    You can thank Snapdragin for that.
    She asked me if this was the same program Merijn warns about on his CWS site: http://www.spywareinfoforum.com/~merijn/cwschronicles.html#byteverify

    So I checked and found it was the same program that still does the same hijack.

    Regards,

    Pieter

    To be fair the website does warn about it. And I believe it's trival to remove anyway.

    Thank you Snapdragon for your help as well. And also to all the other people who posted here with their very helpful information.

    Catwomen:
    I am a newbie to computer security and any help that is offered to me is extremely helpful and i have to at least say thanks for it. I had no idea it was trivial to remove it. I don't think it would be so for me.
