I have Windows 7 Pro installed. I right clicked Windows Explorer and ran as Administrator. I then started to look for System32 in my c drive but can't find it. I did a search but nothing turns up. Am I doing something wrong?

It is under the Windows folder on C drive, if that is where Windows in installed.

It may be hidden, go to "folder options" View tab and unhide "Hidden files and folders" also unhide protected OS files, see if it shows up now. I don't recommend leaving these unhidden.

It will be located at C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32

Or just click Start and type C:\Windows\System32, or better yet %systemroot%\System32 into the search box, then press Enter. The latter works no matter what the drive letter or name of the Windows folder
