I played STO all day a week ago with no problems or glitches

Ive loaded up the computer to play today and -

I click the shortcut ive used for years on my desktop and i get the message :

The item 'star trek online.exe' that this shortcut refers to has been changed or moved, so this shortcut will no longer work properley.

Do you want to delete this shortcut?

After and extensive search of my computer(manually loading up all STO related files)
the only thing i can find is the actual game client however when i load this it will not
let me login, i get a similar message as if the server was down.

Any ideas would be great as i had a real craving to play today thanks.

EDIT** the only thing i can find which remotely resemble the file 'star trek online.exe' are tow files that read :
'star trek online.exeDELETEME'

Weird.

First thing I would do (and it looks like you already did) is try to find the actual exe. For me it's under C:\Users\Public\Games\Cryptic Studios. See if you have just Star Trek Online (application) there. If not then maybe it was deleted somehow. Might need a reinstall at that point.

If the launcher file itself is missing, this thread has the location where you can download another copy...

Did you check your Recycle bin to see if it was somehow accidently deleted?
