Index.dats, they track everything you do, now known as 'Garys', after a famous pop singer.

Analyse/delete them using this:
Download the free XP version here click here

Download the free Win98/Vista version here click here Select a file and click on View File Contents.

I usually use the free Ccleaner to now and again remove the index.dat files that have built up from web browsing, in the windows tab of Ccleaner just tick Index.dat and it says it will remove at next bootime, works OK for me.
