Where's App World?

My friend has a Bold 9780 for about a year now.  He has always used App World, but for some reason a few months ago his App World suddenly dissappeared from his menus, although it is still listed under his applications.  Being somewhat of a guru myself with BB phones, I've tried in vain to uninstall and reinstall App World, and even went as far as formatting the phone and reinstalling everything! When reinstalling App World, it asks if I wish to replace the current version, which I do, I've fiddled around with his App World permissions, but still no App World visible in any menu! (and no, the icon is not hidden). Please help as I'm out of ideas....
