On Windows XP it's located in:

But, there should already be a shortcut in the Start Menu:


You could also find where the executable reside when you open the application, then go to Task Manager, in Application tab right-click on application you want to find and select Go to process. A process of the application will be highlighted, right click on it and select Open File location.
