How To View, Analyze, And Delete Contents Of Index.dat Files

Before I begin, let me explain how Index.dat can be a potential privacy threat to you. Index.dat files are hidden files on your computer that contain all tracks of your online activity, where have you been on internet, what sites you visited, list of URLs, files and documents you recently accessed. Index.dat Analyzer is a free utility through which you can find, view, examine and remove all information that you think preaches your privacy.  It can also come handy if you want to keep a check on your kids and family members.

Run the program and click the search button, this will search for all present index.dat files in the system and will display the results in a simple window.
