i realized just today that 2 of my applications, photo booth and garage band are no longer in my applications folder, not even in trash. the thing is that i don't remember deleting either of them, and i'm the only user of my laptop.
i'm not sure but it seems like my mac just goes on deleting apps on its own. i remember once before it deleted my system preferences and i had to use pacifist to restore it. now i need to do that again for photo booth as i could care less about garage band.
there may have been other apps that got deleted other than these 2 since i rarely use most of these apps, though i can't really tell since i didn't memorize all of them.
has anyone else had this issue? can someone help me to prevent this? i don't wanna wake up one morning with finder as my only app left.
i'm running on snow leopard with my macbook pro.

Your Mac does not delete apps on its own. If apps have been deleted, then it's something that you may have inadvertently done without realizing it.
Preventing things from being deleted may be difficult if they're done without knowing it... However, the cure is easy. It's called making backups. Use Time Machine, that's what it's for.
