Perform the following:
  1. Right click on the shortcut
  2. Select "Properties"
  3. Copy the text field in the "Start in:" entry
  4. Press Windows Key + R, this should open the Run dialog
  5. Paste the text from step 3 into the Run dialog and press the "OK" button
If it doesn't work, then the shortcut is no longer pointing to the right path to launch wherever it's pointing to.

An error window opened and it's saying that he cannot find it. So perphaps i have to change the path link on the properties of the shortcuts, that's what you are telling me?
