History deleting itself/iTunes library clearing

Every so often (every few days, once a week, etc), my Firefox history gets cleared and my iTunes library is cleared. I have to re-do my playlists every single time.

My HijackThis! log is clean, and has been cleared by the tech guys in the Malware forum, so it's most likely not a trojan, as my Anti-Virus hasn't picked up anything, either.

My only is that, since I'm fairly spyware/trojan/junk sensitive on my computer, and I have a few programs related to that (Spybot, Ad-Aware, Microsoft Anti-Spyware, AntiVir, CleanUp!), perhaps one of those programs has taken a few liberties on my other programs.

I don't see any real correllation between running one of those programs, though, and the deletion of the history and iTunes library. It just seems that, every few days, I turn on the computer and it's gone. Hmm...

Any ideas? Thanks a bunch. This is just annoying!

Open Internet Explorer, click tools, internet options and you have the setting for clear history after so many days, see if Firefox has the same thing

Is the iTunes playlist saving to a temporary folder which is getting cleaned
