    Ocassionally, some shotcuts on my desktop (not all of them) that refer to folders stop working unless I reboot. Then they work again. Any ideas on how to fix this?

    No, they are on the C drive.

    Rebooting the system will dump the page files and that could help if the c drive is full... is this machine a vmware?
    It may be worth doing a malware scan as well... we need more details to figgure it out.

    No, it's not vmware. What other info would be useful? The OS is Win 7 64 bit.
