I ran into this problem several of my games have been uninstalled for no apparent reason I am posisitive no one has manually uninstalled the games and my shortcuts to the games have turned up empty

when i go to the folder the *.exe is missing along with the other essential files to the programs

I ran norton and nothing came up....im unsure about whether or not im a victim of a hacker or what

maybe some kind of spyware?? im really not sure what caused this

try running a spyware program. download spybot and adware SE version in www.majorgeeks.com install both programs and run them both. also try using another anti-virus program like AVG which is way better than norton. ive use norton in the past and i have to say, AVG kicks its butt when it comes to eliminating viruses.

that is pretty weird and it could be a virus. have you updated the virus definition on your norton anti-virus program? if you havent then do so and run norton again. good luck
