Simple Hello World not loading in Emulator

Hi guys, I'm brand spankin' new to Android development, and I am have some issues right off the bat.

I have set up Eclipse with the Android plug-in, and the Android SDK. But I can't get my simple Hello World application to run in the emulator.

I am going through this Hello World tutorial. I have Installed a Platform, Created an AVD, Created a New Android Project, and Constructed the UI, but when I hit Run (and select Android Application from the menu that pops up), the Emulator starts up. It takes a while on the "ANDROID_" screen, then shows the shimmering Android logo for a while. But then it goes to the "unlock" screen. When I slide the lock to the right, it opens the Android home screen. I try looking for my app in the applications lists, but it is nowhere to be found.

I have also tried a few sample applications but the same thing happens.

I am running Eclipse Galileo, and targeting Android 2.2. I started with only the 2.2 packages installed (in the AVD Manager), but have since gone and just installed all the available packages, hoping that I missed something.

When I run the project from Eclipse I get the following output in my console:
[2010-08-25 21:06:40 - TestingAndroid] ------------------------------
[2010-08-25 21:06:40 - TestingAndroid] Android Launch!
[2010-08-25 21:06:40 - TestingAndroid] adb is running normally.
[2010-08-25 21:06:40 - TestingAndroid] Performing com.adamharte.testingandroid.TestingAndroidActivity activity launch
[2010-08-25 21:06:40 - TestingAndroid] Automatic Target Mode: launching new emulator with compatible AVD 'my_avd'
[2010-08-25 21:06:40 - TestingAndroid] Launching a new emulator with Virtual Device 'my_avd'
There is nothing here about "loading my app". Is there suppose to be something like that? What do you guys get in your console when running an app?

Here, emulator is not working and is going into "not responding" status.

Any help or suggestions would be great. Is there anything I can do to test if things are working? I am really stumped to why I can't get this simple app (or any apps) to run in the Emulator.

Thanks in Advance
