I just did.  It showed the image I attached but I was unable to copy and paste it.  Even though it did show the image it said 0 results found.

Simplest thing to do is to conduct a search of all .gif files on your computer.  Use this for a search parameter:  *.gif   and right-click your found picture to select "more".  Select additional properties to display as needed.   Where is the picture stored?

*.gif in search box

If you actually did a google search then that is the wrong place.  Google is outside of your computer; it is on the Internet. 

What you are looking for is an internal search of *.gif files inside your computer.  You do not go out on the web to find your .gif file.

Click the Start Orb to begin.

See attached below: 

In the Search box outlined in red in the example, type *.gif   Your Search box will not be outlined in red as this is an example of where you enter the *.gif search term.

A new box will open with More Results at the bottom of the box.  Click More Results and scroll through it until you find your offending .gif file.

Find out where the .gif file is located on your system and report back.  Don't delete anything just yet.

I'm assuming you have Windows 7 on your system.  If not, let us know.

Great!  Good job!

Do the search one more time exactly as before.  After More Results, find your image and highlight that with your mouse and right-click.

A drop-down box will open and second from the bottom will be and option to click file location or something similar (not on Win 7 atm) and a new box will open where your file is located.

Please attach a screenshot of the file location box and also tell us where it is.

Hi -midnight, I may have already found it, it came via imagedonkey and it can be found in various places, look here:

Did you plan a travel to Ohio? This is the official Ohio logo!
Some call polonus  the avast webforum ferret, but at least this "hob"has found it.

I've never heard of image donkey.  My husband is going to Ohio next Saturday to see his son who's in a Hospital in Cincinnati.

Don't know what "hob" means but thanks for finding it.  :)

Hob is another name for  the male ferret.

The word ferret is also a verb as in to "ferret out the facts",
and so we did...
