Where did my XP MS Spyware Prog go?

I installed it but I can't find it! Can't see it in add/remove progs. or Progs listing. Where is it actually located? Is it now part of Windows Firewall - ( which I have disabled as I use Sygate)
Where or how can it be configured or run or uninstalled?

It should have put a short cut on the desk top and there should be a icon in the taskbar,you can right click this to alter settings.I uninstalled it and cant remember what the program group was but i know it was in start/programs.

It should show up in Start>All Programs as Microsoft AntiSpyware. Acolyte is quite right it should have put a Red, Yellow and Black type Bullseye in the Task bar.

Thanks guys, but there's no sign if it.


I even went back to Windows Update to check -
there are no more critical updates and the MS site update history for my PC says it was downloaded along with the last critical update last week.

Did you install it after download?,im not sure but i didnt get it from the update site and it needed to be installed unless you ran it from the server.

Thanks. I just downloaded it from your link.
It's now installed OK. Not even sure I need it, specially if MS start to charge for it as is likely. but can have a look at it now.

I read a thread on another forum saying that Microsoft where going to give the Beta Testers a free program and free updates when it was released. How true this is remains to be seen.
