I'm attempting to install the exynos fix after downloading the .apk file.
When I open the file to run, the system tells me that I cannot install apps that did not originate from Google Play.

After some googling I found an article that shows a workaround, however when I go to:

Home → Settings → Applications

I see a list of applications and memory usage. It's the same window I see if I go to:

Home → Settings → Storage → Applications

Ergo, I am not finding where I can tick Unknown Sources.

How do I access the actual Application Settings shown below?

In ICS and JB, you should find this option in Settings → Security in a section called "Device Administration"

Unknown sources

Thanks - got the app installed. Says my device is not vulnerable. Went back and unticked Unknown Sources. –  a coder Dec 19 '12 at 20:25
    
Well done, it's recommended to keep unticked that option unless you are sure that all the app markets and download sites you use are really safe. –  Francisco Alvarado Dec 19 '12 at 20:29

ICS has the settings re-located and can be found under:

Settings  →  Security  →  Unknown Sources

The screen-shot present on your question is referring to Gingerbread and does not apply to ICS.
