1 - "what files" are they erasing?

2 - Are you by any chance running an upload application/script.?

3 - What kind of scripts or applications have you installed? (a forum, a blog, something else?)

BTW - professional generally means 'for hire' 8)

I guess I should also point out (its a little late I suppose) XAMPP is really meant for testing and development. Its not intended to be a production environment (like a website with a whole lot of users),

The philosophy
The philosophy behind XAMPP is to build an easy to install distribution for developers to get into the world of Apache. To make it convenient for developers XAMPP is configured with all features turned on.
The default configuration is not good from a securtiy point of view and it's not secure enough for a production environment - please don't use XAMPP in such environment

oh well, let's try you answer questions 1, 2, and 3 there and we will maybe see what is happening.
