Folders Missing in some places but not in others

The problem is as follows:

When I go to "C:\Program Files (x86)" I can't seem to find a folder that I'm looking for but, when installed the program that created the folder it took space in my hard drive and when I start the installer again and it asks me to select from a drop-down menu the location in which I want to install the program to, it shows me the folder previously installed...

Why are there folders missing?

There are two folders named "Program Files". Since you have a x64 bit system. Try looking into the other location.

Alright then, go to "C:\" and manually type in the location of the folder you want to go to in the navigation bar, try this out.

What program is this? Also, are you sure it installs into the "ProgramFiles" location, it could be installed just into "C:\".

Does it (the folder) have hidden properties? Have you ticked the "show hidden files and folders" checkbox in Advanced system Settings > Properties?

I have met this problem before. Where did the program come from? Is it a disc if so where did that come from? Or is it a download, if so from where?
