Did a quick search didn't see anything.  Our company uses a site that installs an addon, I am rolling out new PC's and I am hoping to find the temp location (if any) for an installer, so I can more easily preinstall it.

Not sure if IE even downloads an installer for addon's but it's worth an ask.

Thanks!

My bad, I overlooked the "Windows 7" in your title.
In Win7 check one of these paths:
-. C:\Users\[USER]\AppData\Local\Temp\Temporary Internet Files
-. C:\Users\[USER]\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files

(%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files)
