Macros disappear once created -

When Macros is created in either Word or Excel is disappears when restarting either program. When I try to look for the macros it's as if I never created the macro.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Are you saving the files before exiting?  The macros are part of the documents, not application-wide.

I'm putting them in my personal Macros Workbook

You have to save Personal.xls as part of closing Excel--otherwise the macro will be lost. You should be getting a prompt to do that.
In Word, where do you write the macros? In the Normal template?
There may be a problem with saving or opening the template.
Check the dates of any files in the folders given in Tools/Options, File locations tab - User templates and Workgroup templates.
