It seems I've developed a problem with newly installed software. The last two installations went fine, aim and frostwire, but after I restarted both times the software was gone. The shortcut icons were still visible but the exe's could not be found. In each cases I reinstalled the software and it worked fine but was gone after a restart again?

i doubt this is the problem but are you specifying an install location when installing the programs?
if there installing to a temp location then it would explain why the folders/files are not being found? or maybe you could try installing to a specified location and see if that solves the problem.

finally the only other thing i can think of is maybe try installing via an administrator account? it could be a permissions thing?
