Specs: Windows 7
I can not open some of my short cuts, from my document, the response I get is "the item 'naepix.exe' that this shortcut refers to has been changed or removed, so this shortcut will no longer work properly". pls help, the documents were copied from my USB. which is now doing the same when I try to open from there.

exe files are executables not documents. So are you trying to run a program, or open a document?

When you copied the documents, where did you save them? If you look at the Properties of the shortcuts, where do they point? Do they point to the new location of the documents, or to the old location?
