Can't find App World on my BB

I have a BB Bold (system software 6.0.0.) and can't seem to locate app world on my phone - it's driving me insane and has been like this for about two months. If I have a look under "options" it is not installed, but when I want to download it, it says "replacing the excisting .63 version. But can't find any icon. ggggrrrrrrrrr

Please explain what I need to do and do it in plain English please.
