deleting the desktop s/c and just replace them with new ones using explorer and drag/drop. Try 1 first if ok do the rest.

Make sure you are using the .exe line of a program to create the shortcut.

Have you tried System Restore back to a time when they were working?

Bevlee, if you right click on the shortcut and select Properties, in the panel there should a window labeled "Target:". This should contain the full path and name of the program that you want to launch with the shortcut. Have a look and see if the target is the one you would expect with that shortcut.

using start - programmes - go to the line that launches the prog - highlight it and keeping the finger on the left mouse button drag it to the desktop. If that does not work when you click on it you are into either a system restore or reinstallation of windows.
