Directory[]

will tell you what the current directory is, which is where you should 
find your exported file.

Use

SetDirectory["path"]

to set the directory to a particular path.

You might also find Insert / File Path (up on the Mathematica main menu) 
to be helpful.

I don't know about Vista, but it is not easy to get Windows XP to search 
the entire computer. The default behavior is to only search for files 
with popular file extensions (.txt, .doc, .jpg, etc.), and not to look 
in hidden or system files / folders.
