Win 7 keeps deleting EXEs!

Recommended Posts

Ok. I have Win 7 64 Bit. When I go to access my programs that I haven't used in awhile the EXEs are invalid and missing! That last two EXES to go missing were a game (Crysis) and a app (Magic ISO). I am not sure why it deletes them! I usually have to reinstall the programs!


I have scan disked, defragged, virus checked....etc. Nothing is found. This system is only a few months old too so not sure what else it can be. Is there a new program in Win 7 that deletes unused programs?




On a side not THIS is my current system specs (the thing far below is wrong):

AMD Phenom 9750 Quad Core 2.40ghz

Radeon HD 4850

8 Gig Ram

Win 7 Home Premium (64 Bit)

700 Gig HD & 1TB HD

Creative Labs Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Fatality Platinum

950 Power Supply

Haven't heard of this one before, could be maybe that your antivirus is detecting them as threats and removing them automatically?

I also ran into this "feature" a while back where Windows 7 automatically deletes shortcuts if they are pointing to locations that aren't always available (AKA, network location). Not sure if it could be related, but here's a link to the problem.

Hopefully this helps.
