That is just not true.  Please don't spread misinformation.

1) The reasons for dlls to be deleted have been explained in countless email
   messages.  It isn't a random event.  setup.exe doesn't delete a dll every
   time it is run.  It is ludicrous to assert this.

2) Robert has indicated that the situation which caused deletion of a DLL
   has been eliminated.

Larry has already provided the needed information in this very thread.
He obviously understands whats going on here.  You don't.

Since you aren't really clear on what's happening, you probably shouldn't be
offering advice.
