I should have known that! (How anyone in the world can find out that). 
That explains everything. Since Tex main folder were not allowed to be installed into C:\Program Files, it was left over and somehow Latex and metapost worked. But, when PC was turned off and turned on again, the left over file has to go somewhere, so it asked 
"There is a file or folder on your computer called "C:\Program" which could cause certain applications to not function correctly. Renaming it to "C:\Program1" would solve this problem. Would you like to rename it now?"
Thanks a million for your help.

Because it is VISTA and you don't have administrator rights.

An embarrassing mistake arising out of confusing the shape of
something rather rude with something perfectly ordinary when groping
for it in the darkness. A common example of a tegucigalpa is when a
woman pulls a packet of Tampax out of her bag and offers them around
under the impression that it is a carton of cigarettes.
