The program itself is installed in "Program files" in the "Adobe"
folder. If you haven´t got it you may find it at
If you you want the pdf files to show with the correct icon, here
are the steps to follow:

First, find the pdf16.gif icon (look in Google Images if you
don't). Then navigate to Site Settings > Configure Search and
Indexing > Include File Types (in the General Content Settings and
Indexing Status section).

Add the pdf extension, and then copy that image to the \Program
Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\60
Next, edit the \Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web
server extensions\60\TEMPLATE\XML\DOCICON.XML file and add this
entry in the
<ByExtension> setting with the others:

<Mapping Key="pdf" Value="pdf16.gif" />

Then you should be good to go! You might have to reboot the server.
