Disappearing .exes - only recently installed programs
We've had our network running for about a year and a half now (Server 2003 / XP Pro) and have had no troubles until recently.
We've put 2 big bits of software on: Clicker 5 and the 2Simple collection.
They've been running fine until one day every exe from the Crick Software folder and every exe from the 2Simple Collection subfolders vanished.
The first I knew about it was when a shortcut said it couldn't find the exe.
I redeployed both packages and everything was find for a bit. Then they disappeared again. At the same time.
We gutted our ICT suite over the summer and reghosted everything and the same thing has happened again this week.
There's 30 workstations and a laptop that the teachers use in the suite, all in the same OU with the same GPOs applied, yet nothing has disappeared off the laptop so far.
The only difference software wise is that the laptop has AB Tutor Control teacher application on and the desktops have the client version. I've tried a computer in the suite without ABTC on it and it still happened, so I don't think it's that.
Does anyone have any ideas why it's just the recently installed apps and no other ones? Or even better, why it's happening in the first place?
