    A question on using the Microsoft Windows Home Premium and its ...

    Hi there,
    Recently, I downloaded and installed the file "Adobe Reader 8" onto my hard
    drive C. When I'm using Windows Home Premium "Search" trying to search and
    see where the file is located on my hard drive C, the "Search" returned a
    path as: C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\StartMenu". I have difficulty of
    locating the exact path on my hard drive C using Windows Explorer. Would you
    please kindly show me the exact steps of how to pinpoint the location of the
    afore mentioned file within Windows Explorer? Thank you very much in advance
    for your sincere help.

    Right click the Adobe shortcut and select Properties.

    "Adobe Reader 8" is not a file, as such, it is an application name, your
    search is returning the shortcut name.
    Acrobat Reader is installed in the Adobe folder, sub folder Acrobat 8.0
    The actual exe being AcroRd32.exe
    Though why would you would want to locate it?
