Shut up and ride...
Well, you could, now this is a stretch, check your temp folders.

The locations would be different depending on OS, but let's say for XP:

C:\Documents and Settings\[user name]\Local Settings\Temp

[user name] = YOUR USER NAME

Just make sure you have your PC set to view hidden and system files...Check for dates and times and such. Like I said though, this is a HUGE stretch, but a start.

That may help...good luck
