    Bastard, I just downloaded the first half of the City v milan match and have lost it somewher in the computer. After it had donloaded a box popped up asking if it was ok to make changes to the computer and I accidently clicked no. Can I get to magically surface again so I can watch it?

    Can you do a search for the file format you downloaded?

    Typing AVI or FLV into the search box should bring it up in the results.

    Is it worth clicking on Recent Places in Documents? Usually find the stuff in there I cant find as it was a recently finished task.

    Start/C:/downloads, that's the usual place stuff lands unless you tell it to go somewhere else

    It would appear as though in life, as is the case on the internet, I'm a fucking moron. Now what am I going to do? The old lady's at yoga and it's to early for porn and beer. Thanks for all the help.

    Have you accidentally deleted it?

    If so try this free program to bring it back.
