Need to locate Program Files

Hi again,
I have spent last half hour trying to find my Program Files. Any help out there? TY Windows 7 Gods and Godesses! This is getting frustrating, why do they hide it anyway?

Hi Exotic,
I have the same version of Win.7 on my laptop. Do they hide? Not in mine! View the thumbnail and post back your thumbnail of what you see after clicking open Drive:C. There will be two program files folders,1) Program Files and 2) Program Files(*86)

Thanks to the both of you-nope, you're right! I guess I was just 'making it so complicated, trying to pre-anticipate Microsoft,' that I was trying harder methods. I didn't think for a sec they would make it easy. You guys are awesome, as usual, and thank you again!
