Right click on the shortcut and make note of where it points to.  That is under the Shortcut tab and Target:

Then got to Start then Find then Files and Folders and look for the file that shortcut goes to.  This solution can help with any shortcut that gives you this error.

So, if the target read: "C:\windows\sysinfo.exe"
Then your search would be for "sysinfo.exe"

Once it finds the file, note the path to it.  Right-click on your shortcut again and type that path into the For example if it finds the file in "C:\windows\system" then type this into the target of the shortcut: "c:\windows\system\sysinfo.exe"
