Sharky2006;I haven't tried this because the max size my Index.dat file gets is 32KB .How much slowdown could that cause anyway.I do manually delete it once a month or so.Just to clear it out.I did do something simular to my system restore file.But not for speed increase.

Since I don't use it a dummy file for it keeps any virus form being able to hide in it.

But I say if it helped you Great.

Why do I need to try a mirror/different test so that I get a lower score?

With Testmy.net's regular speed test site, here are my results below...

With dummy index.dat

(...not much of a difference but maybe with the dummy index.dat file the beginning of the download is quicker...?  maybe...?)

When you obviously do something new, they just want to test it and see if it is worth testing. Since you have already done the benchmark setup, they are simply using yours as the testee.  :roll:

10393-9696=697

It appears it is still bring in around 700kbps higher even at 20Mbps. That alone is worth 12.44 times faster  than dial-up.

Could I borrow your saved speed.  :mrgreen:

So far so good.  :D
