I like CCleaner and was disappointed that it appeared to be incompatible
with IE8 in that it would not retain wanted cookies (sign
The advice in the CC (Piriform) forum was to untick/uncheck the
Index.dat files box under the Windows tab (Internet Explorer).
I first moved all cookies from the "Cookies to keep" column to the
"Cookies to delete" column and ran CC clean up . Unticked Index.dat
files. I then revisited the sites that I wanted to retain information on
(remember me, save log in etc.) and then moved the cookies to CCleaner's
"Cookies to keep" column. Job done.
Regarding Spybot S&D, don't use the immunisation feature (i.e. click the
"undo" button). IE8 now has inbuilt protection for a number of sites and
loading Spybot's database slows everything down.
I run SpywareBlaster, including enabling the Restricted Sites option.
Some have reported that on slower machines, enabling Restricted Sites
also causes problems but I find it doesn't make much difference. If it
does on your machine, disable it and just use IE/Firefox ActiveX and
If you do use the Restricted Sites option, you will notice that Spybot
also reports these files as protected if you click "Immunisation".
