On my XP machine I can wipe all index.dat files by CDing to Documents and Settings and doing "dir /b /s index.dat>dirfile.bat" -- then I edit that file by prefacing the name of Mark Russovinich's excellent movefile utility to each line ("movefile ") and
finally suffixing a space and "". After rebooting all are reset to a (presumed) empty state. (Yes, I know commercial utilities can do this but I always feel better when I do the job myself with tools I know and trust.)
When I try the same thing in Win 7 from the Users directory I simply get "file not found." I know the bloody index files are there because Agent Ransack finds a ton of them. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks to all those who do.
