    Red face Macbook OS X applications/files disappearing
    Hello everyone. I have noticed that programs I install on my macbook disappear after rebooting my system. The two programs i have installed are Open Office and the game Diablo 3. I have reinstalled Open Office three times now, but each time I turn my macbook on the program does not show up on the desktop or in the applications. Thank you for reading my post. Please help and leave what advice you can.

    Are you using the Guest user account or a regular/admin user account?

    Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).
