I am running Windows 7 Home Premium and I have searched and searched and so far have not found any good information on how to locate this folder on my computer. My antivirus keeps flagging a file in this location, which I have been told is a keygen which is used for illegal programs or software, but I have no knowledge of any such program being on my machine. This bothers me to know that someone in my household may have downloaded such a program and I have no knowledge of it.
