How can I check what was downloaded?

Something just downloaded and I'm not sure what it was.

Usually when I download vids and music I download to desktop. I was just downloading some music and noticed another download but this hasn't gone to the desktop.

It may be something I downloaded but how can I check.

I'm using Win XP.

Thanks in adavnce.

Now if you used a download manager, you could have the answer perhaps!.

Try spyware to find them.

I used to use DAP but a lot of people don't recommend it due to spyware.

I then used a program that was recommended (can't remember name) and I found it not too good (def not as good as DAP was)

Do a Search for *.* on C:Drive and use advanced search for "Date Modified" and specfy the date of the download.

If it's downloaded, it has to be on the hard drive somewhere. Open My Computer, and explore Hard Drives (this is usually 'C').

for the future, if you use Firefox to control the download, it can be set up to always ask where to save, IMO you should set up a downloads folder with sub-folders for different subjects, hope you find your errant download. If you use ewin explorer and click on the date column it will sort and you cansee which file was latest (provided that you use 'details' and not 'thumbnails'
