Index.dat - Disable in Windows 7?

Q: Index.dat - Disable in Windows 7?

I want to get rid of my Index.dat file. Now, if I delete it, won't it just come back as new logs are created?

I know that in XP you could boot into safe mode and enter the following in a command line:

deltree cookies

But I have been told this doesn't work in WIndows 7.

Is there anyway I can delete my Index.dat and prevent it from ever coming back?

Preferred Solution: Index.dat - Disable in Windows 7?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Index.dat - Disable in Windows 7?

It is used by Internet Explorer and will be recreated after it is deleted. So one option is to not use IE.

Hi guys

I have disabled the search indexing service, & would like to know is it possible to disable the message bar that pops up every time I use advanced search.

"Your searches might be slow because the index is not running. Click to turn on the index..."


A:How to Disable "click to turn on the index" message

I think I have fixed your problem. Better late than never!

Go to your Folder Options (From any window directory menu) Tools=> Folder Options. (You may have to press the Alt key to view this menu.)

Search Options - Change or Restore

In the folder options dialogue go to "Search"

In "What to Search" Select "Always Search File Names..."

In "How to search" highlight "Dont use the index when searching..."

At the right hand side of my task-bar there is a small 'magnifing glass' icon that says 'Indexing Complete' most times. I would like to get rid of this but only if it's safe to do so. I've looked in 'Add & Remove Programmes' and I can see 'Windows Search 4.0'. Is this the programme I'm looking for ? It tells me that certain things were installed after the installation of this programme and that certain things may not work properly if I remove it. So can I remove this and if not, what does this programme do that's beneficial ?
Anyone help ?

If you dont have an SSD the 7.8 was wrong. Any normal HD scores in the 5-6 range. after all 7100 was a release candidate.

Hi all. I hope I'm not duplicating a post here. I did a search and came up empty. My question is this: Has microsoft done away with the index.dat file associated with internet explorer? I've read that it is no longer included. Can someone confirm or deny? I know that IE8 has an inprivate browsing feature which is a great privacy tool. But if your browsing activity is still recorded elsewhere, it sort of defeats the purpose.

After upgrading, I ram WEI. Processor os 5.9, Graphics 5.9, gaming graphics 5.9, hard disk 5.8 (raid sys), memory 5.0
I am using 5-5-5-15 DDR2 mem, 2x1Gb sticks in slots 2 and4. Mobo is a BFG 680i SLI.
Previously when I ran th esame test on the old rig, I was getting 5.9 easily for mem. So, what the hell is going on? It seems a very low rating for what it is. I am not sure if it is a windows thing, or a hardware thing- it is possible a more recent BIOS would make a difference, but I have been unable to locate ANY BIOS updates- BFG pages lead to dead links, as do pretty much every other lead.
Any ideas anyone?

Hey, i recently built a new computer and fot some reason the WEI seems extremely low.

Its showing 4.8 due to the processor, everything else is fine and above 7.5

RAM - Kingston FuryX 2400Mhz 16GB
GPU - 980ti Xtreme gaming
PSU - EVGA G2 Gold 750W

I would think that cpu should get at least a 7.6 or 7.7

Are you fully updated, all drivers installed ?

I am running Windows Vista Ultimate on my desktop, but i can update my Performance index. When Vista was first installed, it ran a performance test, but the video card driver was not installed so it got a 1.0. Well after i installed the video card driver the computer tells me that New HardWare Dected and it wants me to refresh my score. Well it runs the test, screen blacks out once or twice like it should, and when the test is over, nothing happens. The rating does not change and i still get the new hardware thing. This never happened to me when i was using home basic.
Ps i have also upgraded my ram from 1gb to 2gb high performace :) and that score wont change either.

I did a clean install of Windows 8 Enterprise N, installed Kaspersky Internet Security 2013 and tried to run WEI but it says: The Windows Experience Index for your system could not be computed. Cannot complete the requested assessment. This system does not have the necessary multi-media support to run the requested assessment.

I have disabled KIS and it still doesn't work. I am aware that Win 8 Enterprise N comes without WMP, but is this the reason why WEI won't run? Also, is WEI necessary and does running or not running affect system performance?

A:Windows Experience Index won't run

My guess (and that's all it is) is that it is a driver-related problem.

Make sure all drivers are the latest available, especially those for graphics and sound.

Also install a third-party media player (I like K-Lite, or VLC is good). I've never used
an 'N' version, but the lack of a media player could be an issue with WEI, I don't know.

And no, it isn't necessary to run WEI, nor does it have any effect on performance.
Hope this helps.

I ran successfully the Windows Experience Index (WEI) soon after installing Win 7 64 bit on a new computer. I tried running it again after making some hardware performance changes. It started to run, but gave a warning that I was on battery power and stopped? This is a desktop machine. If I go to the Power savings section I see what appears to be settings for a laptop?? It seems that my computer is seen as a laptop. How can I change that? Now I don't even have the option of running the program. I ran SFC and all is well, I deleted all the files in C:\windows\performance\winsat\datastore and that didn't fix it.
It just seems that my desktop is seen as a laptop?? Any way to change that, and where??
Thanks for any help.

I have just recently helped a friend upgrade his computer to be Windows Vista capable.

One of the upgrades was a nVidia 9600GT graphics card.

Except now the problem is this, even with the newest nVidia drivers installed, the WEI will not score more than 1.0 for Graphics.

The odd thing is it shows the correct driver is installed, but the test is being run using "Standard VGA Graphics Adapter", as show below:

This happens even after a total clean re-install of Windows Vista Home Basic.

Any ideas how to fix this?

Everytime when I try to run the Windows Experience Index, it gets to Windows Media Assessment and then my monitor turns blank and the light keeps blinking. I can't do anything besides restart the computer. I have updated everything from my video card to my BIOS, yet it still does this. I have all the codecs from K-Lite Codec Pack. For some strange reason it does the same thing when I run any of the Orange Box games, but other games like WoW, The Sims 2, Kane and Lynch run flawlessly. It even does this sometimes when I watch any videos in Internet Explorer besides flash-based players. If anyone can help me I would appreciate it.

Straight to the point, When I move my users from my C drive to obviously save space windows index is always been clever enough to search files I needed now instead of buying a bigger D hard drive I've used an older WD caviar Blue 1tb hard drive for my files and had the drive letter changed to B...

I have GTX 260 and Windows 7 home 64 b, and Windows Experience Index is just 2.0.
It's because of Gaming graphics is 2.0.
All other indexes:
Processor 7.5
Memory 7.5
Graphics 5.9
Primary hard disk 5.9

Anyone have an idea why Gaming graphics is so low?
How to increase this index to any higher value?

Also have some problems with PC. Here is the tread's link:

After I installed Vista 64 bit with 2x1gb of rams, the Window Experience Index was 5.7 which is determined the lowest factor, in this case, the computing speed. The question is why I later installed another 2x1gb rams which makes the total of 4gb would dropped the index to 5.6? More ram = slow????

A:What's up with the Windows Experience index!

Many systems relax memory timings in order to run with 4-sticks. This is very common of Intel chipset motherboards.

Moreover, memory will run at the speed of your slowest memory. You might want to download and run CPU-Z and have a look at the memory timings for all four slots on it's memory tab. This will tell you what SPD rating your sticks are and if you're now running at higher latency/slower speeds since adding the two new sticks.

Got A Virus! My desktop is all white! Desktop Properties will not let me change it. My clock on the lower left is in military time and for example it says " 21:30: VIRUS ALERT! " Start menu was messed up. My computer menu doesn't even show the C: drive. I can only access the C: drive from the run menu. I did the five step process. I did the DSS as well. The DSS didn't post the Extra file, so i could not attach it.

I did attach the Active Scan from the panda software.

Any other information you need let me know?
