Is there an advanced search to help me?

Am I searching the entire database of COMET movie files?

Help on previously saved searches

How do I find a previuosly saved search?

As long as you remember your username you entered when you saved the search, that is all you need. Just follow this link to access.html and enter your username.

I forgot my username!

Not a problem. You should just try a new search and you will probably get what you want and then save with a username that you can easily remember.

How many searches am I allowed to save?

As many as you want.

Help on displaying files

My computer will not display the movie files?

You probably need to download QuickTime 3. It's free!!
