Windows 7 computers are losing custom shortcuts from the desktop daily

I just installed 5 computers with Windows 7 professional 32 bit and 2 of them randomly lose their custom shortcuts.  These short cuts just point to specific folders on the server.  They open the shortcut and select documents they want to view.  It only happens to 2 of them out of the 5.
