I've tried everything I know to wipe the cache, including trying to kill the entire folder before Windows starts. I can't get these tracks to go away. Why are they there?

The last time I ran PSI, it stuck at "Retrieving ..." at the end of the scan, and stayed there for about fifteen minutes before it showed the results page. I let it go, just to see what it would do. Next time, I think I'll terminate the program if any unreasonable lag occurs.

Maurice?

(I don't see the method for attaching a small .jpg to this, but I have a good one if you'll tell me how to send it.)

Well, after dellater and killbox couldn't get either the contents of TIFs or the folder itself (Windows replaces the folder if you kill it using extraordinary methods, and the new folder is empty except for the old reliable index.dat), and after all the standard everyday deletion methods failed, I uninstalled PSI, and the TIFs folder emptied, finally.

I've never seen dellater or killbox unable to delete a folder or its contents before Windows starts up, but I saw them both fail today. Those numbered tracks of psires.dll were tough cookies, and they weren't even Cookies! Apparently they weren't files either, so file deletion methods in Safe Mode with a command prompt and all the right DOS commands wouldn't touch them. Weird.

Okay, so I love my PSI, and I forgive it for giving me a headache (yeah!), and I'm going to re-install, first by installing v.2 (which lets me pick the destination folder), and then by updating to the latest version (which will instal to the same folder by default)..

If it misbehaves again, I'll let you know. Count on it.

Hi Oldwisewiz, I'm interested in Killbox & Dellater but unable to find a reliable download site. Everything I try is full of advertisements and some downloads were marked as having a Trojan by Avira Internet Security. Where dit you get these progs? Thanks in advance for your help.

This is an alternative that I rate 5 stars.

FileASSASSIN can eradicate any type of locked files from your computer.

Well, I've looked for the old source, but there's too much dellater scamming going on, so if you'll send me a note (editoratsignkingstondotnet), I'll send you a zipped, much-used, absolutely clean copy. It requires no installation. Just park the executable on C:, then use Run > C:\dellater <space> filepathandname, and it'll confirm the deletion to take place on reboot.

Killbox is clean (and just the executable) at http://www.afterdawn.com/software/desktop/file_man... When you get the file, just shorten the name to Killbox, and park it where you want it.

That's all, folks.

Yahbut, so can the ones I tried, but these things weren't FILES; they were something like junctions, and they were linked to the psires.dll in my PSI folder. They wouldn't die and they wouldn't let go until there was no psires.dll on that computer.

I will, however, have a looksee. You can never be too well armed to fight the junk.
