I believe Vista dumps them in some system folder. Foamy would know.

If you remember the name of one of the save games, you could try doing a global search on that, making sure to check hidden and system files.

You will find that Vista hides nearly everything, and assumes you have the brains of a brick and are going to go about deleting everything important. I HATE VISTA already!

Foamy saved me on this one so thank him for it.
You need to go to your control panel.
Switch it to "classic view".
Select "folder options".
Part of the way down on the "view" tab is an option to "show hidden files & folders".
This will allow you to view the files.

Now to find where Vista hid them (applies for all patches & unpacks).
Go to "my computer", then your hard drive, then "users" & select your user directory.
There should be a folder called "AppData", select this.
Iside the "local" folder, there is a "VirtualStore" folder.
Inside this there is a "Program Files" folder and you'll find what looks like a copy of your game folder.
Cut this and paste it into the real "Program Files" folder and you will now have all your game files in the one place.
