I am using CleanUp with W XP Home

So far ir has worked well until this morning when it stopped at

Does anyone know why and what can I do to get past this please?

There are some files that can't be deleted while the pc is being used. This mayy be one on them, in which case when the pc is rebooted or logged off it should be able to remove them then. The index.dat is one of these files.

Yes I realise this but the programme actually hangs at this point - there are some files that it seems to take a little longer to delete but with this it was still waiting after 15 minutes!

I've never waited that long before!

Try to manually delete this file, and others in the temp folder.

Then try the cleanup routine.

I now this defeats the purpose of CleanUp, but it may solve your issue.

Just curious,when I booted up yesterday I got message VIRUS PSW. Keylog G and something about Windows dll. AVG free edition got rid of it but just wondered was it a serious Virus. One question though does Zone alarm (free) do the same job as AVG or can you have both on system at same time?

I checked on Google and this gave some information on what the file is:

Do as Diodorus Siculus and delete manually.
