I was watching TV on my laptop and had to pause it. When I had finished watching I noticed my hard disk useage had increased by about 5gb. I had not realised the programme was being stored on my hard disk. How can I find that file so I can delete it please?

Try searching the Drive for the name of the movie. Or start watching it again and select save then look where it says it is saving it to. Then click skip or don't save.

Unless you have an app installed that allows the capture of the streaming video, you can just
delete ALL temporary files. The file may actually of been deleted on rebooting the computer depending on your browser and other settings.

Easiest way to clean/ delete all temp files, logs, tracking cookies, etc. is to use a program such as
CCleaner. Be sure to note if anything like Google Toolbar or Yahoo Toolbar is offered during install and be sure to uncheck if you don't want it.
