One real basic way, is click start/Search, Select All Files and folders, in the search box type in *.* then look down and expand out "when was it Modified" - select the date, then hit search, it will tell you every thing that was run, downloaded that day Example (http://www.imagef1.net.nz/files/Example1217556460.jpg)

And to filter out everything else except the "larger" files - also click to expand the "what size is it" and select the "specify size (in KB)".

Make sure the dropdown is set to "at least" and enter something like 10000 (which is 10 meg) or more.
