Default Re: disappearing programs?

create a new shortcut for IE:

C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.exe

And do the same for calculator:
%SystemRoot%\System32\calc.exe

If they keep getting deleted post here again.

Run a virus scan, as well as a spyware/adware scan while you're at it.

thanks for your help, i ran a virus scan and an adware scan. the virus scan found nothing and the adware scan removed 40 items. there is still no icon anywhere for the calculator but i did find the internet explorer one and created a new shortcut. also, all the games (solitaire, minesweeper, etc) are now missing.
