If they do not work delete them, then open Windows Explorer in the program that you want a shortcut look for the program.exe file now make the explorer window smaller by pressing the two little folder icon top right corner, right click the .exe file and drag to desktop choose create shortcut then try it to make sure it opens the right program

Try setting the resolution and refresh to a higher rate, apply and save, then revert back to your original settings. This will rebuild your Icon graphics and may cure the problem.
