Try this

First make visible all hidden folders. Then go to ProgramData ( this is a hidden folder)
C:\---> ProgramData ---> LabCenter Electronics -> Proteus 8 Professional. In this folder you will definitely find LIBRARY folder.

If you are not finding the library folder then unhide the folders you will find ProgramData inside that you will find the folder labcenter electronics inside it you will find the folder needed.

show hidden files ..... see now folder (C:\programdata)

or search for it ..... it takes one hour for me to find my library

I think that's because you add ground in any location on Proteus, thus simplifying the schematic view. In real life, you would have to wire back to ground on the board.
