Use Cache Killer to clean your surfing history.

Every time a person surfs to a new website using Microsoft’s Internet Explorer, to delete the history it leaves behind, you can do one of two things. Either delete the history through internet explorer itself, or use a web cache killer application to do it for you.

Web site pages are downloaded each time you visit a web page. The files that are downloaded are stored in a temporary location called the web cache. This is the storage area that is assigned to the browsers file structure. Every time you go back to the same web page, only the changes are downloaded, thus providing a quicker load time.
Makes sense does it not? Also the browser will load what ever relevant files it can from the web cache making for a faster load time. The disadvantage to this however is that the browser cache will record and contain all the history of the websites that you have visited over time. In order to delete this history, manually delete it, if possible, or use a cache killer application such as webcachekiller to do it for you.

Advantages of the web cache.

The web cache makes it possible to store and access off line content quickly. In such cases, when an internet connection is not available, these pre-cached websites can remain accessible for off line reading, because most internet browsers automatically save webpage media to the web-browser cache after viewing. By doing this, it reduces the amount of bandwidth and data pulled from the broadband connection and is especially important should you be using a mobile data connection. The only real draw back of the browser cache tends to be the space it takes up for the storage of all the media and associated pages. 

About the web cache and why you should use a cache killer.

The web cache came about because of a basic assumption developed  by web-browser designers. They always see the internet as slow and is never as quick as you hard drive thus your data connection is always slower than your pc’s hard drive. Designers decided it would always be quicker to retrieve, or pre-load something which is stored from your hard drive, than to re-download it from the internet again. Even though in this modern are, web speeds will never be as quick as something as local as your hard drive.

Web-Browser designers saw that most web-pages always have the same page format. What this means is as soon as the web page is downloaded from the website, only the changed part is re-downloaded. This is the intended purpose web-browser cache. The web cache is a space set aside on your hard drive for use by the web-browser, and it’s the web-browser that decides that the data is wanted again and organises the page which is loaded back in. As an example, when you first visit a new web web page on any site, the browser downloads the title logo in to the web-cache, and then displays it the web page which you’re viewing. For every web page that you go to, say with the same website, the image won’t change and so does not get downloaded again, because an unchanged copy is already in the web cache.

Types of files that are contained within the web cache.

The web cache stores all kinds of files associated with web pages. Media such as mp3, mp4, javascript, html, all sorts of files that are used to assemble a web page comes into the web cache.

Dis-advantages of the web cache.

  • Longer load times and slower efficiency if the data files are not found in the web-cache.
  • Old and outdated copy of the page loaded.
  • Corruption can be seen in the web cache, causing browser crashes.

If an on-line web page is not found already stored in the cache, additional time is taken to then load the new web page from the internet.

How to Manually refresh the browser cache, F5.

To make a manual browser refresh in Internet Explorer, hitting the F5 hotkey is the usually the quickest way. This will force the browser not to reload from the web cache, but to go straight to the online web page and download the updated web page.

What happens if we clear the cache with a cache killer?

If you clear the cache manually or with a cache killer application, this will delete all data from the stored web cache and force a re-load of all new data.

The older style temporary internet files, (TIF).

Microsoft’s internet explorer when it was first seen, used a storage area known as the temporary internet files web cache. This could be saved at %userprofile%\local settings\temp location. This type of webcache stored it’s info in a very simple to get to structure along side the famous index.dat file. When Microsoft Vista came out, the webcache was then modified by microsoft.

Caution is needed when looking to this location, as microsoft deliberately designed the webcache to be a protected space. If you look into and then attempt to select and click on any of the files contained within, the operating system will flag a warning. That’s a deliberate result, because the operating system automatically restricts what could be potentially dangerous files. It does as a precaution, because you may well be downloading nasties such as malware or viruses without knowing about it.

Some of the index.dat errors that have been seen on all versions of Microsofts OS, are below.

  • The famous Index.dat error.
  • Index.dat is corrupted.
  • The Index.dat not available.
  • Index.dat did not properly load.
  • Not registered index.dat.
  • Of course the Runtime Error: index.dat.
  • And Error loading index.dat.

These index.dat error messages can of course appear at any time.

Newer version webcachev 01 files.

As with all newer operating OS’s, microsoft always likes to alter the ways it does things. If your searching for the webcachev01 data files, you will find it difficult to find. They hid and encrypted the files, using a completely new method altogether, and gives a whole new set of challenges. Microsoft deliberately made it more difficult to deal with this new type of webcache, and are very well protected by the operating system.

So how often will you do you delete your webcache information and cookies?

When you ask your favourite internet explorer to clean the webcache files for you, you’re not actually certain it does it. How do you know?  The usual answer is that you trust it to do what it says it will, but you can never be sure of course. You can ask the microsoft browser to clean upon exit, and select various options for it to accomplish, but this will only happen upon exit. What happens if you keep the browser open for such a long time. You need something to kill the cache in real time. A cache killer like WebCacheKiller is designed to do this.

Could Microsoft Windows be spying on you?

If you are using the newer windows 10 on as you’re pc, then it’s quite possible that all of your activities are being watched and recorded. This when a cache killer app becomes very much in demand. Browsing, writing emails, send /receive emails, all of these things, windows can see. Windows 10 was modified a serious amount when it was released and has no resemblance to any of the old coded OS’s. It was built with recording and monitoring things you do.

It;s a fact that within the buried depths of windows 10 are hidden features that record, document and analyse every thing that uses it facilities. It’s with the intention of knowing what you do online as a person. Big brother is watcing you.  Even Microsoft says and admits that windows 10, automatic spying facility won’t be stopped. 

If installed from new and a fresh setup, the new system windows 10 will try and handle your internets bandwidth. It’s been given the the authority to install any software which it sees fit to, without the users permission. Updates are fully automated, with out any details being displayed to the user. No regard to the annoying advertis that are shown to the user at any time within the Start Menu. It may be a little restricted at the moment, however you just know that they will get worse.  Any little hardware modification, these are recorded and and any modifications you might make to the actual operating system, the big ‘M’ will know straight away. On top of all of this, a nice little key logger is alos in the background doing it’s job. Can anything be done about this?  Nothing. read the Windows ‘service agreement‘ (EULA) that enables Microsoft to do this..

Microsoft has had to deal with lots of enquires that their new operating system monitors to much of what we do. Keystrokes, and allsorts just a few of the growing privacy concerns. Microsoft says to us mere mortals, “the information collected is safely encrypted” and “stored securely”.

If you are concerned about your privacy being monitored, I suggest that you do something about it yourself. Installing a cache killer app will certainly help, and it will tackle the monitoring situation that windows presents at the moment. Also, you have to be aware that installing this type of cache killer can impact other services that windows uses.

All you should ever want to know about Cookies and cream.

Cookies actually are a good and handy way to carry data info from one session from a website to a another, or in between sessions, as it saves having to re-load the same users data. Storing the data on the local pc without anything like cookies would even be a problem. It would be tedious to retrieve the same consumer’s data and would require a login to every site visited.

These could be lots of information to deal with, and using a cookie makes for lighter work. The first time a user visit’s a web page they will select a username, this is stored inside the cookie for later retrieval, in addition to password and address information. When the same website is visited again, the data is retrieved without it having to be re-entered.

Creating the cookie happens each time a new webpage is visited, and as quickly as the button is pressed to submit the info. If you have chosen to disable the cookies, the cookie creation will of course fail, and the website will then ask the user to enter the details again.

Are cookies safe?

Many concerns exist about cookies in relation to the internet and hacking. Cookies themselves don’t present much of a risk, but you do need to use a cache killer application otherwise you could have problems.
