    What do you mean disappear? The shortcuts are missing from the start menu ? The application files are missing from Program Files? The shortcut is gone from your desktop?

    This sounds like you are getting a fresh profile when you log on, so that shortcuts written into your profile are getting wiped. You need to create new shortcuts and put them into the Start Menu/Programs folder for all users in Documents and settings in this case.

    Disapear means: Seem like it is automatically Uninstall.
