Why is my syncthing shortcut being deleted on windows?

i just download syncthing and follow the forums guide, but after a short while the shortcut will just disappear, and it will show a white page saying that the shortcut is gone, how do i fix this?

Is the file pointed to by the shortcut still there?

no, syncthing.exe isnt on my pc

Gut reaction when Windows seems to have poltergeists: check your antivirus. Otherwise I don’t know.

Well if it’s not there them clearly the shortcut points to nothing. As calmh suggested it’s possibly the firewall.
