On Win XP I have tried using the disk cleanup to get rid of old internet files, but if I view the 'temp internet files' while in the dic cleanup facility, there is a file called 'user.dat' which when you view it using notepad, is a 'client urlcache MMF ver 5.2'. It contains a lot of stuff, amongst which are all the search words or phrases used on the internet. It is a big file and disk cleanup does not erase it. It also resists attempts to erase it manually or through 'usage tracks' in Spybot. Does anyone know of a safe way to get rid of it please?
have you gone to "covering your track" in ui and clicked on the various boxes which then when you click on the lists enables you to change the settings.There are various delete options for the internet
