  1. Thanks again Tony. 1) Although "y" (nor Y,N,n,A,or a) didn't work for me, the biggest mystery was all the other keys on my keyboard being "dead" when I tried to type anything else.!! 2) A very interesting link and I would still advocate an anti-index.dat attitude. All The Best, Haba. PS. Don't know what happened to the quote.!! 1) Should read " As for your questions, "y" should really work, just like it does in the batch command: "DELTREE /y" Not sure what happened there". 2) Should read "And here's some reading on index.dat files: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Index.dat"
  2. I'm really overwhelmed by all the responses to my post #17. !! It is going to take me a while to absorb and consider all the varied advice given,some of which at first reading seems to be over my head, but I'll do my best.!! In the meantime, I want to express my thanks to DjLizard,Andavari,Tony Klein and noob 1 for your interest. How can my problem not be solved with all you helpful folk on my case.? !! Regards, Haba.
  3. Hi,noob. I expect you've been busy but I would really appreciate replies to my posts #15 and #16,please, as I'm still stuck with the problem of how to answer the "Overwrite c:\windows\tempo (Yes/No/All)?" question. Regards, Haba
  4. Noob. This is to supplement my yesterday's posting (#15). I have been told that the way to answer the "overwrite c:\---etc" question is to type (in lower case) "y" for yes, "n" for no and "a" for all. I have just tried the "y" for yes and the response was--"Bad command or file name"!! Your directions have got me through the exercise so far and I hope you'll be able to get me over this snag please. Regards, Haba.
  5. Hi,Noob. I've just returned from a couple of weeks away from my PC and resumed action on this issue. I've gone back to your posting of 27/05, in particular--"if prompt to overwrite, press Y". When I entered 3 above, I got "overwrite c:\windows\tempo (Yes/No/All)?"with the flashing dash after it. Could you kindly clarify what I should do please, as the only "Y" to "press" is the first letter of Yes, which obviously is not what's intended. !! Do I have to repeat the whole exercise for each location of an index.dat file or can they be grouped together in a single command or just listed under 3 as above,please.? Kind Regards, Haba.
  6. Thanks for the further info: Noob. I've spent most of my PC time over the last couple of days trying to implement your directions without success and I'll try to give you as clear a picture as possible of my activities (having made a series of attempts), in the hope you will be able to see where I've been going wrong. 1) No apparent problems. Chose Command Prompt. Clicked Enter and c:\>Set tvdumpflags=8 appeared, with three c:\>s below it, the bottom one showing a flashing dash. 2).a. Typed in exactly as you said (double-checked!) .Clicked Enter and got "Bad Command or File Name". b. Ditto and got either "File Creation Error"or "Volume in drive C has no label. Volume Serial Number is 2247-17FE. Directory of C:\. File Not Found." Didn't attempt to continue in circumstances. I hope you won't lose patience with all my come-backs, as I'm really keen to have the benefits of the exercise. Where do we go from here,please.? Regards, Haba.
  7. Noob. I've never been into DOS before and know nothing about it, so I'm probably doing it all wrong.!! I brought-up the MS DOS Prompt screen by typing "command" into Start>Run, which showed "Bad command or file name" and "c:\windows\desktop>". I had no control over the text (location,deletion etc) but typed in (after "---\desktop.)"echo index>c:\index.dat",after which nothing at all happened. Could you put me right,please.? !! Could you also explain where I type the two 3) commands or perhaps it will be obvious once I get past 2a).? Regards, Haba.
  8. Thanks Noob. 1) I know the index.dat locations. 2)/3) Could you tell me how to generate the dummy file and overwrite the "real" files,please. ? It's something I've not done before -- I guess I'm rather low-tech,so I also have to ask 4)/5) How do I generate and edit the batch file to overwrite,please.? I assume this will have the result mentioned at the end of your previous posting ie."internet explorer won't write to index.dat ever again", which would be great.!!! Regards, Haba. Hi,Glenn. CCleaner has always worked OK on my Win98SE until I had the recent problems. Cheers, Haba.
  9. Thanks for the suggestions Humpty but no change. I expect to see the headers but nothing is being deleted. I have also discovered that my Cookies are not being deleted,despite the setting.!! Regards, Haba.
  10. Thanks Humpty. I'm aware of what you say,but the contents of my Index.dat files are exactly the same immediately after the CC run as they were before it.!! Cheers, Haba.
  11. Hi. I have just discovered that (despite the appropriate setting) CC is not deleting my Index.dat files, which are still there when I reboot after running a scan. Running a series of scans doesn't make any difference. What is the remedy,please.? Cheers, Haba.
  12. Thanks TW. Dear old Major Geeks came good and CC 108 is now installed. !! Cheers, Haba.
  13. Hi. I have downloaded V108 three times (trying different mirrors) but I still have v105.!! Please advise. Cheers, Haba.
