Its NOT where IE6 stores them, that is in Doc & Settings - User Name - Local Settings - Temp - Temp Internet Files

Ive a Downloaded Falsh movie, I know is in MY PC somewhere, as it plays when the PC is disconnected from the Net, but for the life of me I cant locate it.

Finally, how can I get Win Explorer to seacrh for files in the Temp Internet Files folder.

Thanks..........John in Mosgiel.

Open up Windows Explorer on your computer. Click on Tools>Folder Options> Once the pop up shows up, click on the 'View' tab, and scroll down a bit. You'll see an option checked, that reads "Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)". Uncheck that puppy.

Then you can do your normal routine of going to a user profile in Documents and Settings, look in the "Local Settings" folder (which is hidden and you may have to unhide those folders), and BAM! There it is.

Since it is enabled on your computer, and you are a domain admin (I assume), you can now do your Start>Run> and type \\networkpc\c$ and traverse to the culprits computer.

Thanks for that, ive located the tutorial file I downloaded.

About Opera 9, does it store its files in the same Folder path, or somewhere else. I know there are two other tutorial files on my PC, two I downloaded with Opera 9, but cant locate them in the Hdrive, they dont appear to be in the file path mentioned above.
