So, where's the file?

I'm offline watching a flash animation and decide to save it. I view the source, see it's called mouse.swf, and do a file search...but find nothing. So, where's the file?

Windows/Temporary Internet/ ??

Umm...no

A file search is START>FIND>FILES/FOLDERS>mouse.swf

Anyone?

If you are off line, where did the animation come from?

As Diesse says, it will be found within one of the folders with the 8 digit/letter name in the Content.IE5 folder within Temporary Internet Files[the location of which will vary depending on your OS].

If it's not showing in a search, have you got your settings to show hidden files and system folders?

Make sure you are searching the entire C; drive and not just from C:\WINDOWS\Start Menu when you launch find fron the start button or you won't find it.
