Is it normal to have a file called "index.dat" in the cookies folder? I can't delete it as it is being used. Thanks for any info. Regards David.

Great explanation wasn't it..NOT.

Index.dat is just an index of your Temporary Internet Files, there are ways of deleting it in DOS or with some third party tools. It just rebuilds itself at bootup. Unless its growing out of size its fine to leave alone.
