How do I find something on my computer if I forgot where it is. I saved a group of files about 6 months ago in a secret folder to keep them away from my roomate but now I can't find them. (I may be completely to blame here) Please help!

Hopefully you are running Windows 7, Vista or XP. Eitherway, as long as you remember at least one of the files, try this:
1 - Click Windows Key + R
2 - Type CMD.exe
3 - Type dir c:filename. /s

At that point the file should show up and you will have the path to the file.
