What free programs do you recommend for getting rid of/deleting
index.dat files, tmp, temp, cookies and other tracks that accumulate on
a box?

ccleaner, its always worked well for me

http://www.ccleaner.com/
"CCleaner is a freeware system optimization and privacy tool. It removes
unused files from your system - allowing Windows to run faster and freeing
up valuable hard disk space. It also cleans traces of your online
activities such as your Internet history. But the best part is that it's
fast (normally taking less than a second to run) and contains NO Spyware
or Adware! :)"

I'm checking out the programs available for my next door neighbor. I
keep my systems healthy but my neighbor is a rock where it comes to
computers.

ccleaner for normal stuff and SandboxIE if he really wants it gone on
shutdown.
I find that ccleaner found a bunch of stuff on my pc. I kept my cookies
and my google earth cache, etc. I like some of the stuff it can delete.
It still deleted 7 gigs of garbage for me. Nero temp stuff from my wife's
recode...

Like I said I worked hard for what I have and I'm not going to lose this
because this is what I always have wanted.
I need to remove those cancerous people from my life to keep what I
have, and I will. I'm tired of all
the backstabbing and deceit. This is my world, I created it, now it is
time to undo what I let happen. I will not turn back."
