Hello Amanda Mitchel,

Scan your computer using an anti-virus. On your firewall so that virus cant affect your Files easily.
 
Or simply replace your shortcuts with a new one.

This problem occurs due to attack of viruses to your windows registry files and infected files in system32 folder.

You may have to scan your full computer with any trustworthy antivirus.

After full scan, please re-start your computer your all shortcut will start working.

If you are using Windows XP, and have set the shortcut available to all user profiles in Documents and settings, set the permissions to read-only.

This way, other users won’t be able to delete the shortcuts on your desktop.

Hi

This is a common problem with windows desktop computers affected with viruses.

To repair or solve this problem, you need an anti-virus program that can eliminate the virus and restore the icon functionality.

If after repair, your icons do not work, then delete them from desktop and make shortcuts from the app again.

This will work.
