    As you may know, there is an offline index.dat file that potentially contains every website you have been to, and so on.

    K:\DOCUME~1\DEFAUL~1\LOCALS~1\TEMPOR~1\Content.IE5\index.dat

    Usually this file cannot be deleted or edited while windows is running. I did not know if it could even be viewed, but I thought I'd try. this file is just a text file, so I opened it up with Notepad, and got sort of a weird result.

    Is this something that windows puts for some bizarre reason, or does one of my programs have a sense of humor.

    by the way, this is just a small piece because the file is 69 kb in size. What do you make of thiso_O
