My programs keep getting deleted

Specs: Windows Vista
Hi, for a while now I've been having this problem. I install some software, something I downloaded online, and it gets deleted as soon as I restart the computer. I'm not having this with all the software I download, currently it's happening with the scrobbler. But I think my computer is the problem, not the software. The files seem to be on my computer, but the icon is missing. When I click on it, I get a message, something like ' The application cannot be started because the configuration is incorrect.

Never heard of exactly that issue.

I guess it could be a hard drive or memory issue.

I doubt a virus is doing it but it could be possible.

If it were me, I'd run some diags maybe. Vista has memory diagnostics and that may be a good first test just for because.

The only for sure way would be to run tests or do a clean load from OEM disks. It may be time to do that anyway. Then get some good A/V software, even free one's like Microsoft's Security Essentials is good.

Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?

I'm having the same problem. I think it may only affect the program if its saved to Program Files, so i'm gonna try saving it somewhere else for now. WTH is this????
