How to find out if avg virus scanner is really installed?

Download disappears after approximately 75% is downloaded. Free version 2011. My security setting says it's working but I can't find it to run a manual scan. It's not in the control panel under adding or removing programs section. How do I find it?

Tried the icon in the Notification Area?

I assume this is Windows, so look for the AVG icon in the Notification area, (where the clock is).

Also, look in the Start Menu.

What download disappears?

missing avg

Thanks Mark, There is no icon by the clock and nothing in the start menu. The download refers to the icon on my desktop. It says "avg_free_stb_all_2011_1375_cnet". The title is "AVG Setup Self-Extractor based on 7-Zip".

Re: download disappears

It's a two step process, of course:
1. Download the installation program to your hard disk.
2. Install by running that installation program.

Which step fails?
If it's step 1, try it on another PC and run from your USB-stick.
If it's step 2, it probably is a corrupted download. Try again. If it happens again, download on another PC.

It was step 2.
