If by this you mean that the Windows XP search was in hidden and system
folders, then you wouldn't.  This doesn't include the temp directory (as for
why it doesn't: ask Microsoft).  Searching the entire HD for
"spambayes1.log" found it for me.

In any case, just look in the temp directory.  With XP, this is almost
certainly C:\Documents and Settings\{username}\Local Settings\Temp.  If it
isn't, it's almost certain that you would know, because you have moved it

Various people have reported using Spambayes successfully with Outlook 2003,

Please answer the other questions:

You mean that you started up Outlook and the SpamBayes Wizard appeared?

So you completed the Wizard, but you don't have a new SpamBayes toolbar?  It
should have a "Delete As Spam" button and a "SpamBayes" button.
