    Have you tried the button just to the right of Internet explorer on the task bar Look in the upper left corner for downloads . Hope that helped :)

    Can't find downloaded files?

    Click Start and enter file to search for.

    To avoid this here is a tip--Set up new folder on C: and call it "TEMP" without quotes. Then set your browsers to download everything to that folder. You'll never lose your files again!
    I also have a file on the C: drive called UnZipped and I never lose my unzipped files. :razz:
