    Why can't I keep certain net animations to view off line on a permanent
    basis. I've downloaded sites with animations and some stay and some
    disappear after a few days. Is there a way to keep the disappearing ones
    from doing so? I have a laptop (win 98) that keeps them but the desk top
    (XP) won't. Also is there a way that I can burn a CD to keep them
    permanently? Every time I burn a cd I can only get the stuff that doesn't
    animate to record. Needless to say I'm a rookie at most of this kind of
    work. Any help will be gratefully received. Thanks in advance.

  2. I'm guessing these files disappear because you're using Internet
    Explorer and they're being stored in your Temporary Internet Files
    Folder, "temporary" being the operative word here. To save them permanently:

    Start Windows Explorer. Navigate to your Temporary Internet Files
    Folder. The path will look something like this.

    C:\Documents and Settings\YourAccountName\Local Settings\Temporary
    Internet Files

    Click the Internet Address column heading to sort by URL name.

    Locate the name of the website from which you downloaded the animation.
    The animation file itself will have an extension such as .swf. Copy this
    file to a different folder. From there you can view the animation by
    right-clicking the file name > Open With > Internet Explorer.

  3. what you do is if they're GIF files, right-click on the picture you want, go
    to save picture as, and then name it. it should stay on your desktop as long
    as you don't have to reimage your harddrive.
