    Preloader code running every time page loads

      Hi everyone,

      I purchased a preloader from Adobe Exchange  for my flash animation. I've noticed though that even though it works, whenever I refresh the page that the swf file is on, or even navigate away and then come back to the same swf page, the preloader starts operating again as if the file was being downloaded for the first time.

      I thought that once a swf was downloaded it didn't need to be done again. The code from the preloader is as follows:
      onClipEvent(load){      
             
      //show text Loading
             
      this.text = true;      
             
      //show reflection
             
      this.reflection = true;
             
      //show percents
             
      this.percents = true;
             
      //set color
             
      this.color = "0x003976";
             
      //set gradient color for reflection
             
      this.bgColor = "0xffffff";
             
      //set speed (1-9)
             
      this.speed = 6;
             
      //loop infinite, not loading
             
      this.infinite = false; 
             
      //loaderTarget (if null self swf preload)
             
      this.contentTarget = null;             
             
      //auto stop timeline
              _parent
      .stop();
      }
      Could it have something to do with the fact that it's an onClipEvent?

      Appreciate any advice.
