Right click on the shortcut and choose properties. The shortcut tab will show 'Target', in this box will be the actual location of the original file. Look there. If the location is a network location or an internet location then you really do not have the file on your computer. If the original file is not in its proper location then it may have been moved or deleted so do a search for it using start/search feature. If it is in a different location then move it back or create a new shortcut and delete the old one (you can also modify the target address if you like). If it is in the recycle bin then you need to restore it. If it is not found then it probably is gone.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
