Vista IE files and recycle bin

I just installed Eraser on my Vista laptop and had a few questions.

1. What are the locations of the Internet Files, cookies, and history? I knew the locations on XP.
2. Can I set up the scheduler to empty the recycle bin? I can not see how to make that happen.
3. How do I schedule to erase the index.dat file on reboot?

Thanks.

I'm not a Vista user but you can find out where the cache is stored is by opening IE and doing to Tools \ Internet Options \ Temporary internet files \ settings.
If you do a search of your computer for the words 'cookies' and 'history' you should find the other two.

I'm not sure this is possible.

Open up eraser. Go to the scheduler. Right click and add a new task. Select the 'file' option (3rd radio button) and browse to the index.dat file. Click the 'schedule' tab and change from 'every day' to 'every reboot'

Repeat this for each index.dat file you want to delete.
