ilovekeat--Yes and Yes.  You should find the flash file in TIF.  Using XP that is C:\Documents and Settings\UserName\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5 You can save it elesewhere from there.

It would be better to save it from the website in the first place if the website permits.

The file should have some identifying words to help you zero in on it in the TIF folder.  But, if not, run a search on *swf .  Chose from the probably few .swf files that you will find--especially in TIF.
