Default Google desktop / AIM

Anyone here use Google Desktop? Extremely powerful software compared to the slow, boring windows search engine.

Anyways, if I have a conversation with someone via AOL Instant messenger, and use the word "processor". Days later I can run google desktop, search for the word "processor" and it will bring up my entire converstation in a browser window, with no information about where it was stored.

So my question is where is AOL storing this text? I can't find any temporary files, but it has to be somewhere.

Interesting... Well, are you using AIM, GAIM, TRILLIAN, or AOL or any other thing that connects to the aol network. are you using any plugins for your software like Middle Man, Dead Aim, ect. They tend to store conversations.
