Is there a consensuses on what is the best (or at least a good) "free"
program for erasing Internet tracking--cookies, history, Index.dat, etc.,
for Windows XP Home edition? I am familiar with Internet Explorer's built
in Tools/Internet Options feature--I am looking for something a bit more
effective.

Crap Cleaner works pretty good.

Well it's good, but it doesn't do secure deletion, so it's fairly easy for
someone to recover it, using a undelete program.

Using something like cleancache, or cleanup or even better Eraser
commandline via a batch file might be an alternative if you want to make
things a bit harder.

Just in case if you care.

I like System Security Suite at:

It also allows you to delete the index.dat files on reboot.

I think most browser add-ons have a tracks erasing feature. I know Maxthon
does. It allows cleaning the address bar, search, history, cache, cookies,
and even form data. It has a "clean all" button to clean everything in one
fell swoop. De-fragging does a pretty good job of overwriting old files so
they can't be un-erased by normal means. I bet Slim and Avant browser also
have a cleanup feature.
