    I looked through the threads and couldnt find anything close to what happened today...

    I installed 2 new programs on my phone. Pocket Empire and Mystique. (Games)

    A few hours later I was sitting at lunch and noticed my home screen flashed. Next thing I knew my clock/weather widget was gone. WTF.. So I went to re-add it.. it wasn't listed in the widgets. Ok, very odd.
    I get a text message and flip to the tab where the message widget was... GONE. No longer in the list to install either.
    Same thing happened with Mail and Music... there one minute gone the next.

    I cleared the HTC SENSE data and cache with the hopes of it fixing itself... nope. Even rebooted the system a few times. Nothing.

    I'm now re-downloading DC 2.07 and I'm going to re-flash (no wipe)
    If that doesn't work I guess I'll wipe/flash

    Any ideas what could have happened? Virus? I used to have Lookout on my phone (replaced it with WaveSecure) just realized that WS didn't have a virus protector on it.

    really lost with this one.

    Rooted or stock?

    Try a reboot then uninstall new games and see if problems are still there.
