    It should have gone to your Downloads folder or the folder you specified in your browsers settings if you've ever changed it. If you can't find it do a Spotlight or Finder search on the file name.

    No. The curl command piped the script directly to bash, which executed the script. The OP is lucky the script wasn't malicious.

    I took a quick look at the script. I assume it terminated with

    Code:
    Checking for VirtualBox
    
    ERROR: VirtualBox command line utilities are not installed, please reinstall! (http://virtualbox.org)
    If so, all it did was create a hidden directory .ievms in the OP's home folder. He can remove this by pasting the following into Terminal and pressing return:

    Code:
    rm -fr ~/.ievms/

    I think you meant to quote the OP instead of me right? I wasn't the one who had this problem.

    Sort of a hybrid reply. I quoted you to emphasize that your reply was completely wrong. The rest was directed to the OP. Sorry for creating confusion.

    [EDIT] I've fixed my original reply.

    Thanks for the help and guidance on where the file was. Getting it removed. Btw since installed system crashed 1x and everything is extremely slow memory wise.
