My computer did not caught a virus or anything.. it appears this way as of now. But about a week ago, Windows applications and softwares started to disappear on itself. Functions such as: Search, WMP, all the Games files, MS Paint, the sndvol32.exe, and more started to disappear one by one.. I'm thinking about reformatting my computer as this is the only way to fix it.

Has anyone ever had this problem on their computer? I'm frightened in how it keeps making my software disappearing... I need some major help please. =(

Are you sure it's not a virus? Do an online scan at http://housecall.trendmicro.com/ and post back the results.

Try madmans' suggestion just to make sure it isn't a virus.
Then use scandisk to see if there are any problems with your hard drive.
Let us know how you made out.

Hi bonggor, Sorry to hear about your troubles.

I don't have an answer to your question but I kind of want to follow this thread because I have had something like this happen to me and I never did find out what had caused it.

I see that you had a problem with either a Trojan or a Virus back about eight months ago. Maybe it's time for you to post another HJT log in the HJT forum and see if that virus has returned.
