Question A shortcut monitor/automatic fixer for Windows XP?


In Windows XP Pro (SP2), there seems to be no way to have shortcuts automatically updated so they can stay connected to their target files or folders after the latter have been moved or renamed. So I'm looking for more efficient ways of reconnecting broken shortcuts with their moved or renamed targets than manually deleting them and re-creating new ones (this can be quite a chore if you reorganize your files and folders often, resulting in a lot of shortcuts to fix); and I'd like to find out if there are any PC programs that can monitor shortcuts on Windows XP and automatically fix them when their target files or folders get moved or renamed. Any suggestions on this issue will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

This is the best I found in search:

NirSoft programs usually work... some very nice free utilities. In fact I'm downloading this one myself. I never noticed it before.

edit: now that I'm on the page... the one shortcoming is it seems to only work for 32 bit windows(probably due to 64 bit registry redirection jazz it can't figure out.)
