Are you running it as a different user than you installed it as?

Are the files still present in c:\Program Files\Pidgin?

Have you tried installing any other programs? Do they survive a reboot?

I am running it as the same user, which is also the admin. And the files in c:\Program Files\Pidgin are there, and I can boot up from the Pidgin shortcut in that folder, but Pidgin is not anywhere else on the system, including my desktop and the programs from the start button. And so far Pidgin is the only program that does this. I'll try some other programs and let you know if the problem duplicates. 5 bucks says it's a Vista issue. Thanks.
