Stupid Illustrator tricks--any suggestions why this is happening?

My rectangles in Adobe Illustrator keep disappearing in regular view, although I can see them in outline view. Any idea why this is, and/or any suggestions regarding how to make it stop?

I'm posting this for my husband, because Illustrator is getting on his last nerve:
In Illustrator in Creative Suite 6 on Windows 7 Enterprise, I create rectangles with the rectangle tool that then will not show up in regular view even though my stroke is set to at least 1 point black and fill is set to none. In outline view (control-Y on a Wintel machine), the rectangle will appear, but not in regular view.
Sometimes rectangles that have been visible in regular view will become invisible, although, again, in outline view they're still there.
Why is this happening and how can I stop it?
Thanks for any help, hive mind!
