That directory is hidden, so in explorer you have to tell it to show hidden files.

On systems where soft links are possible (they are on Unix, and I've heard
they are possible on NTFS filesystems too but I'm not yet as deep versed as
that into the "novelties" of NT-like systems) you can just link
%USERPROFILE%\Application Data\vim to %HOME%\vimfiles (NB -- %USERPROFILE%
and %HOME% are assumed to be the same). Or you can, as a user, have a
slightly different configuration, and set your %HOME% to your
%USERPROFILE%\Application Data -- then your files will be in
%USERPROFILE%\Application Data\vimfiles which is almost what you said you
wanted, and that without a soft link.
NB. I don't see an "Application Data" subdir in my C:\Documents and
Settings\Tony (aka %USERPROFILE%) on my new (French-language) XP system. The
nearest to it that I can see is "Mes documents".
