I searched the archives for info on the above heading,found the thread,and it gives a prog that will delete it.If i try to delete as normal i get a popup box.Cannot Delete Index.it is being used by another person or programme.If i use the prog to delete this file will it affect any programmes that i have,or is it best left alone

Depends on the program but the index.dat file will not allow you to delete it with Windows tools whilst Windows is in use.

However, Windows will re-create Index.dat.

As the VoG says, Windows will ALWAYS create another index.dat file.

Thankyou everyone,but one question remains.Does deletion interfere with any prog,s.

No.
