any help or insight will be greatly appreciated.
Are the apps that are going missing installed on your SD card? If you don't know, go to Menu (button) > Settings > Applications > Manage Applications and click the SD tab. If your applications that go missing are checked here, that is why they disappear. When you plug your phone in to a computer, it's probably set up as a disk drive and the computer takes over your SD card, which removes the apps from the phone's control, which makes them look like they're deleted.

The second issue I have no clue about. But it sounds like malware.
