    Downloading an app for me is fine, no problem with that.

    But when i try to install things, they say they locate in the Macintosh HD, then i go there search for whatever and it cannot be found.

    The things i have tried to install are..

    Photoshop Trial (Downloaded off so it must be safe)

    So i download the installer for example the trial for photshop off
    Run it, says its installing, then it says its finished and it located in the Macintosh HD, but iv'e searched for it, nowhere to be seen :{?

    Any Help appreciated

    MacintoshHD is the name of the hard disk drive (HDD) which can be changed to whatever you like.
    On there are several folders, one is called Applications, in which all applications are installed.

    Is Photoshop there?

    You can also use Spotlight to search/look for files.

    I assume this is your first Mac?

    If so also have a look at the following links, as the information presented there might be helpful in your future endeavours into Mac OS X and could clear up initial confusion and may even prevent harm to your system or your files.

    Usually when it says that it's being installed in Macintosh HD it means that it will install in your Applications folder on your Macintosh HD. Application installers should be more clear about that. Your Applications folder is the default place where your applications are installed. If it's not there then do a search in Finder.
