    What is the purpose of the Index.dat file one can find in C:WindowsCookies?

    Run a search in the IE forum - it is well explained there. It is basically a master index of all your cookies and temp files.

    Delindex works in Win98 and WinME .

    The primary purpose of Delindex is to delete Index.dat files which are never resized, and only get bigger. These files contain all your web surfing history since they were (re)created, and large index.dat files can cause performance issues with browsing. Index.dat files cannot be deleted if Explorer is running. The secondary purpose is to delete junk files for reasons of space, privacy, and performance. Delindex is "stand-alone" program and requires no installation and no other files to run. All notes are within the program, so there are no separate ReadMe or Help files.
