Windows 7 Home
I'm old school and up until going to IE10 I could delete all index.dat files.
IE9 and prior:
Using ATF Cleaner, CCleaner, Windows Washer and Index.dat Analyzer would clear most.
But then I would go to safe mode with command prompt and.....
C:\ attrib -r -a -s -h index.dat /s
and then.....
C:\ del index.dat /s
Restart and File Search would display index.dat files and all would be cleared.
I updated to IE10 and it no longer has index.dat files but container.dat files that show
empty. I Googled a while and couldn't find a satisfactory explanation or procedure
to completely clear traces of history. So I backed it down to IE9 until I find out WTH.

Anyone have any expertise and knowledge of these changes to Internet Explorer?
Thanks in advance.

(Stupid part is I use FF 21 as primary but was testing IE10 just to see how it was.) tongue.gif

So much for this bleeping forum. I found and know the answer to my questions with no help from anyone here.

I'm a computer and network engineer but damn if I'll help if no one even offers the slightest suggestion to my Q's.

Good luck. :notme:  :nono:

Geez... It's only 7 in the morning here. Perhaps no one knew the answer.

I'm glad you found the answer to your question.

As for why you never received any response. . . it probably has more to do with the fact that no one who saw your topic knew the answer (I certainly have no idea) than it did with people simply not wanting to help.

In any event. . . it hardly calls for rudeness.

Sorry, Blade. Had a bad day. Definitely no need to be rude and it is a difficult (new) issue.

Seems M$ just can't leave well enough alone. Not just M$ but even FF22 is screwed.

I know you, man, and you know me. Long time ago in another place.  :hello:  I'll get with you later.

Again, my apologies. :thumbup2:
