Using Internet Explorer I have gone to Macromedia (Adobe) website &
downloaded Flashplayer 8. After the download, which was almost instant
using my DSL connection, a message appeared saying "Flash Player 8
Successfully Installed".

However, I cannot find the program on my computer. It is not shown on
my XP desktop and is not listed under XP's ALL PROGRAMS menu.

Did it really install? If so, where can I find it? Or, did I do
something wrong when downloading?

all opinions, info, replies, appreciated! Aaron
