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!

-. Open IE / control panel
-. in IE: Tools | Internet Options
-. In Control Panel. Internet Options
-. in Internet Properties window, look for Temporary Internet Files section
-. click Settings
-. clik View Files
-. A new window displays all of the Temporary Internet Files stored on the computer and their location on the local hard drive. (originating URL is also there)

Check if this can accomplish what you are trying to do :-)

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)
