Hi sspt, and welcome to TSF.

Tracking down all of your index.dat files is next to impossible. I would advise against this plan because of the risk of deleting files required to run your system.

Ccleaner is a tried and trusted program and very popular. Here is the link but watch out for the install options, if you don't untick the bottom box, it will install Yahoo toolbar, which i imagine you don't need!

Also, do not use the registry cleaner part of the program. Registry cleaners are not good

Here is a link to some very good, reliable advice, right here at TSF.

Is your pc running slow?

Any more questions, please feel free to post back.
