None Steam Games removed from Game Library
The one thing I find the most irritating about Steam is pretty much every week the games library cleans out all of my non-steam games and makes me re-add them all to my library if I want to play them with the Steam interface in the background.
I sincerely hope this is a bug which can be fixed and not a marketing department thinking that if I can't see none Steam games in my library I will only play Steam games.

Other than that I love Steam and Borderlands 2 works an absolute treat!

Yep it's a pain in the ♥♥♥♥.

Once you have them setup again go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\userdata\<USERID>\config and backup the shortcuts.vdf file.

Then if/when it happens again just exit Steam, restore the file and restart Steam to get your shortcuts back.

This... Has never, ever happened to me o.o... I've had some of the same none-Steam games in there for months O.o The marketing department comment was sarcasm I hope, or big-time paranoia :P.. But that does sound like a really annoying bug, hope it gets fixed for those affected.

I think this happened ONCE to me but I'm not sure.
Maybe there is something in the settings.

How do I know what USERID is mine?

Hmm, not sure actually. However you can open the shortcuts.vdf file in notepad to check the shortcuts are listed in the file. If so backup that one.

Apparently one of the side-effects of Valve's company culture is that bugs don't get fixed. Anyway, I wrote a couple PowerShell scripts to help with this issue. The first backs the file up:

# --- Begin script
$shortcut_dir = "C:\Users\<your Windows username>\Documents\Steam\"
$steamUserId = "<your Steam user ID>"
$shortcut_file = "shortcuts.vdf"
$shortcut_path = $shortcut_dir + $shortcut_file

Rename-Item -Path $shortcut_path -NewName ($shortcut_dir + "shortcuts " + (Get-Date).ToString("yyyy.MM.dd") + ".vdf" )

Copy-Item "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\userdata\$steamUserId\config\shortcuts.vdf" $shortcut_path
# --- End script

Then the second restores the most recent backup:

# --- Begin script
$steamUserId = "<your Steam user ID>"

Copy-Item -Force "C:\Users\<your Windows username>\Documents\Steam\shortcuts.vdf" "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\userdata\$steamUserId\config\shortcuts.vdf"
# --- End script

You'd need to edit the files for your Windows user name, Steam ID, and pull out the " (x86)" if you are on 32-bit Windows. You may also need to enable PowerShell scripting: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee176949.aspx. When Steam kills your shortcuts, shut it down, right-click the restore script and "Run with PowerShell", then run Steam again.
