Some Apps got uninstalled and reinstalled again

iamaze 20 Reputation points

Hi guys, i have got a superceedence set on some apps, all was working for about a month, then recently on some machines some apps were uninstalled and then reinstalled. And some wont appear as installed after a day or two.

Such programs were 7-zip, Filezilla, Notepad++ and PhpStorm.

Why do these happen ? Is there any way to mitigate this?

Does this happen to other people as well, and how was this resolved ?
