Did the installer run through to completion without any errors?

It sounds like it wasn't installed.  If you look in C:\Program Files, is
there a SpamBayes folder there?  

**Yes.  Contains 3 folders: bin; docs; lib.  Also contains license, icon,
uninstaller, dat file, and Spambayes-1.Orc2 

If you look in your temp folder (probably
C:\Documents and Settings\{username}\Local Settings\temp) is there a
Spambayes1.log file there?  (If there is, then the contents of this could
help us figure out what is happening).

**Yes, actually there are 4.  The first 2 say "registration complete"; the
4th says:
