This free application rapidly scans for Index.dat files stored on your PC; unfortunately, it doesn't do a thing about them. Index.dat Scanner is meant to be a companion to other privacy tools that actually delete files. Its purpose is to search your computer to be certain the other software worked, and that's about it. When you run Index.dat Scanner, it immediately goes to work creating a list of any leftover files on your hard drive from browsing. The interface is straightforward; you'll be able to save the list and take a look at the software they recommend to remove the files. This program may be useful if you need to make sure your current privacy tools are working, but other than that, you'd do better selecting a utility that scans and deletes Index.dat files.
