Hello,

Index.dat Suite won't delete any files.

The window that pops up, says that it can't find the majority of the files, except for 3 or 4, which it says are in use by another process. This is using either the RunOnce or the Shell commands, with all security apps disabled and even in safe mode. I tried running the batch file via a DOS disk, but it wouldn't acknowledge the C:\ drive. I don't have anything hidden in the folder options. It's running through an Admin account.

I would paste the specific messages, but they aren't logged in the debug.log. It states what it's trying to do (i.e. delete files), but not the result (failure).

Windows XP, SP3.

What am I doing wrong?

Sorry for taking so long.

I'm currently working on identifying and resolving this issue, but sadly due to work and personal commitments, this is taking longer than I'd have liked.

It is suspected the batch file isn't actually being run at startup, by an account that actually has access to the files. Not quite sure how this issue occured however, as it only appeared after one of the Windows Updates came out for XP SP3.

I'll post back as soon as I've got a potential fix for this.
