For corporate & legal reasons, I need to find out as much as I can about the activity on a PC. From what I can see, the index.dat file is going to give me a lot of information. I tried opening it with notepad, and I tried opening it with IE (it didn't give me that option).
I have copied the index.dat file over to a different system, so how do I open/view the contents of the index.dat file?
I (read:the company) would prefer free or cheap. I am not a forensics expert, although I have a very high interest in forensics. I am not programmer type of person, the most I have done is written simple Windows scripts to connect printers and network drives, and some very simple HTML web pages.
