program download

If I download a program but choose not to run it. Where do I find it when I do want to run it.
Thank you

If you're using Vista go to the start orb/search bar,type


press return

If not;

"When you do a download, you get a dialog box that shows you the
current default folder. You can accept it as it is, or change it to
something else. If you change it, the new folder will become the
default in the future. " Untick `Close this window when download completes`, click Open Folder when the download has finished. You might need to download the file again for that purpose alone.

I don't think that brundle could possibly make it any clearer.
If it's too big to bother downloading again,click on start then search and type in the name of the download.

I think the `choose not to run it` is the stumbling block - surely thats what the Save button is for.
The Temporary Internet Files folder is hidden from the user usually, but go to Internet Options, click Settings under Browser History, click View Files.

I'm starting again. This time I'll save it.
When I previously did'nt run the program I clicked the wrong box choosing not to run.
As its spyware doctor I did'nt want to risk having files in the wrong place.
I ran search but it did'nt find it.
I've deleted everthing I can find, so I'll save next time.
