I selected Automatically Detect and Install from this page:

I then selected custom and it installed everything including AMD Vision Control Center. I restarted PC but I can't locate the software. 

I did install this software before and I used to open it via right click on desktop... but now I can't locate it neither in program files folder.

So how do I open it to use it?

Operating System
Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit SP2

Issue Details
I believe I already said this. Some weeks ago I had installed the auto detection tool from this link:

I then selected Express installation and let it do it's job. Then all went fine. However after some weeks I decided to uninstall everything, so I did. I followed this guide: Basically I alsre removed some registry "keys" etc just like guide says.

Anyway a few days later I decided to re download the auto detection tool to re install everything again. All went fine again except that when I restarted pc as it asked me to do I can't locate AMD Vision Control Center to open it. Previously it was in right click menu of desktop as well as in Start> Search box.
