Ok so my programs folder creates itself either at startup or when I install a new program. If I delete it. it also deletes the program shortcuts from the start menu. Everything I install goes to this desktop programs folder and not the official one. How do I get this to go back to normal?

Run msconfig & go to startup. If it's loading from there, uncheck it, reboot & click ok.
