  1. Thanks folks. So, in summary it seems CCleaner is a good tool for deleting to free space but not for security purposes if the index.dat files are not totally wiped - which means personal info could still be retrieved.
  2. Hi, If I am correct CCleaner marks index.dat files for deletion at time of next startup as they can't be deleted immediately as they are being used. I also believe the index.dat files contain much personal info that is held within the temporary files that can be immediately securely deleted (7 overwrites). So my questions are - when the index.dat files are deleted at next startup are they securely deleted via the 7 overwrites (assuming this is set)? If not, should you run CCleaner again after next startup in order to securely delete the old index.dat files? Or is there no way the information contained in index.dat files can ever be securely deleted. Thanks in advance folks!
