View the contents of those obscured index.dat files and see what information Windows is keeping about you and your Internet activity. All in this free utility! Introducing Index Dat Spy, the quickest and easiest way to view the contents of your index.dat files.

Index Dat Spy is a powerful and easy-to-use application that exposes the contents of any index.dat file - even if the file is currently in use by Windows. It translates a great deal of binary data - i.e. internal computer information - into a more human-readable form. And you don't have to be a programmer to read it either!

index.dat files have been the subject of much discussion since Microsoft has released relatively little information about them. Even after clearing your browser history, emptying your cache and deleting your cookies from Internet Explorer, there still remains information about where you've been surfing hidden away in these index.dat files. Although Microsoft claims that there is nothing special or secretive about these files, all versions of Windows tend to go to great lengths to obscure them.

The author of other popular Windows utilities such as CleanUp! and Private Eye now brings you Index Dat Spy - an easy-to-use, small utility to expose the information stored inside your index.dat files. Like his other utilities, Index Dat Spy also can be used as a way to protect your privacy on the Internet.

No gimmicks here, Index Dat Spy is so easy to install and use that you'll be spying on your index.dat files in minutes.

Thanks for trying Index Dat Spy.
