Elusive flash files

I watch a lot of live soccer streamed on the web via p2p sites. I did a full McAfee scan the other day. Normally I run this in the background. Halfway through I checked the progress and as the files were wizzing by as they were scanned, I noticed such files as "Man. Utd. v Blackburn, Arsenal v Chelsea, Real Madird v Barcelona" and dozens more that I had watched over the months. These files appear to have been saved somewhere on my C:\ drive and must take up a lot of space. Problem is, I can't find where they are to delete them. IE9 temporary files folder is empty. Flash player service folder appears empty also (or won't open) Part of the path is displayed as:- C:\Users\TomGB\AppData\Local.........but this does not come up when I search in the Windows Vista search box. Any ideas out there?

Usually flash files are stored in Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash.

Have you been into Flash Player Settings Manager to look at the amount of disk space you have given permission for Flash Player to store? Type in Flash Player Settings Manager - then go into Global Storage Settings Panel.
