Windows 7 automatically corrects some shortcuts if the path has changed when you open the shortcut. See if this works for you - open each shortcut.

Yes..!! it works for most, but for complex ones , specially in the case where my system was formatted (drive letters were changed), and when i copied back my old data from my external Hard drive, few times it failed.
So i was thinking is there any external tool or Cmd batch way to modify , trace such invalid shortcut and correct them.?

I don't know of a tool that can do what you are describing - but you could write your own tool using a scripting language like AutoIt3 or AutoHotKey. It would probably be quicker to correct them manually.
