You could try searching your harddrive for Flash.exe, and check the Add/Remove Programs list to see if it's there. If it isn't, for some reason it didn't install, and you may want to try again. It doesn't sound like the case, but if you're on a 64 bit system, note that for example Photoshop will install into Program Files, but Flash will be in Program Files (x86).
