Right click on one of the shortcuts you are having problems with,
select Properties, and verify that the Destination and Path (if
present) are correct. You can click on Find Target to ensure that it is
associated with the correct item.

Money can only be opened once. Try this.

Open Task Manager...
Ctrl + Shift + Esc | Click the Process tab | Click the Imagine Name tab to
alphabetize | Look for MSMONEY.EXE and right click it | Select End Process |
Click Yes when you see the Task Manager Warning | Now try starting Money
again.

When I have this problem, I simply ask my wife.

She just gives me a dirty look. This reminds me of the guy who said
something like "I like to hold my wife's hand. If I let go, she shops".
