Before I even make a start has anyone ever managed to delete this file from within a script. As its a locked file and can only be removed via special software or by booting into safemode I'm wondering if its at all possible....

On a Windows 9x computer these files are located in the following locations:

\WINDOWS\Cookies\index.dat

\WINDOWS\History\index.dat

\WINDOWS\Temporary Internet Files\index.dat

\WINDOWS\Cookies\index.dat

\WINDOWS\History\index.dat

\WINDOWS\Temporary Internet Files\index.dat

In Windows 2000 and Windows XP there are several "index.dat" files in these locations:

\Documents and Settings\<Username>\Cookies\index.dat

\Documents and Settings\<Username>\Local Settings\History\History.IE5\index.dat

\Documents and Settings\<Username>\Local Settings\History\History.IE5\MSHist012001123120020101\index.dat

\Documents and Settings\<Username>\Local

Settings\History\History.IE5\MSHist012002010720020114\index.dat

\Documents and Settings\<Username>\Local

Internet Files\Content.IE5\index.dat

Cleaning the Internet options, cleans the index.dat.

Untested script for XP Pro:

Run('control inetcpl.cpl')

WinWait('Internet Properties')
ControlClick('Internet Properties', '', 'Button6')

WinWait('Delete Cookies')
ControlClick('Delete Cookies', '', 'Button1')

If Not WinWaitActive('Internet Properties') Then WinActivate('Internet Properties')
ControlClick('Internet Properties', '', 'Button7')

WinWait('Delete Files')
ControlClick('Delete Files', '', 'Button2')

If Not WinWaitActive('Internet Properties') Then WinActivate('Internet Properties')
ControlClick('Internet Properties', '', 'Button10')

WinWait('Internet Options')
ControlClick('Internet Options', '', 'Button1')

WinWait('Internet Properties')
ControlClick('Internet Properties', '', 'Button15')
