Default .vimrc File Disappeared and Saw vimrc and .viminfoFiles in My Home Directory

Thanks for the help.
I just exited a vim session and started a vim session again and the .vimrc file is still there. I'll check it again tomorrow to see if it's still there.
The vimrc file (by using the 'stat vimrc' command ) seems has the correct dates, interesting enough, it has the last time that I accessed, modified/changed the .vimrc file. The .viminfo file contains some history information. I'll also check with my system admin about this weird behavior....

> I'm not sure what's going on ;-( updated a .vimrc file in my home directory with some customized settings last week. I'm looking at my home directory now, that .vimrc file disappeared for no reason and I saw a file called vimrc and .viminfo in the home directory. Of course, it didn't take my customized settings when I used vim. Is that a normal behavior? Am I missing something here?

Looking at http://vimdoc.sourceforge.net/htmldoc/usr_05.html#vimrc-intro and http://vimdoc.sourceforge.net/htmldoc/starting.html#vimrc it doesn't seem to be normal behavior (I don't use vim though). What does stat vimrc and stat .viminfo show? It will give you an idea when the file this file was created. It is quite possible that there is a system wide setting that your sysadmin setup to source those files as the local configs.
