you obviously moved the program related to the shortcut. The easiest way would be to go to the folder where the real program is at, right click the application, create short cut, then drag the shortcut to the desktop. If you are using windows, I sure hope you know your way around Windows explorer.

If you need further more detailed assistance just reply.

You could right click the Icon & check properties to make sure it's properly Targeted but just do like Jak says & create a new Icon Shortcut, Much Easier.
