So you’re surfed the seedy side of the ‘net and you want to remove the evidence.
This means you would have done at least the following with Internet Explorer:
- Delete Temporary Internet Files
- Clear History
- Delete your cookies.
Having done all that, you’re feeling safe from the prying eyes of your parents / significant other / IT guy.
WRONGGGGG!!!!!! Go to the back of the queue, and hang your head in shame.
What can you do about it?
Not much really.
1. Buy a commercial product, which can remove these index.dat files, or
2. If you have some DOS batch skills you can run a batch file on logoff which deletes the index.dat files.
Yes “files” is right, there can be more than one.
Option 2 is what I use.
Update: I posted an update to this post here.
Another way to look at SharpReader is that it’s like some newspapers where they have a “what’s inside” section. On that page, they’ll have a paragraph from each story. The Spencer Street Soviet does this in their print edition.
