Hi mohhsen67, welcome to 7F! :)

I had an experience recently where my foxit icon wouldn't work, it showed as normal but it wouldn't open the program or individual .pdf files, here's what I did to fix it.
  • Go to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Programs and Features, wait till it populates.
  • Look up your Corel install and right click on it.
  • Hopefully you will see a repair option like I had for foxit.

  • If you do have the option make sure every thing else is closed on your machine, then click on it.
  • Allow your machine to run through the repair process, mine took about 7' including a restart.
  • Check to see if your icon reappeared.

If that doesn't work there are a few other avenues:
  • If you have the corel disk you can try repairing it through the disk; Windows can only work with what's in the program file, if there is a corrupt file it can't repair, but with the original disk or download it has a better chance. Open the D/L or place the disk into your optical drive and open the disk, somewhere there at the very beginning you might see a window asking the same options as shown in my pix, choose the repair option and let it run. Just in case, save this for option 3 below.
  • A complete uninstall then reinstall Corel; You didn't mention which corel version you have but this covers suite x3 to x5. When you're on the corel site use their upper right search bar to search further. If it comes to this don't worry about your work, they will still be there through the process and re-associate themselves when the install is finished.

Questions? Post back.

If the icon has just disappeared from it's normal location (start Menu or Desktop Etc), you need to open the file explorer and locate the application .EXE file, It will normally be in either program files or program files (x86) but easiest to search for coreldraw.exe (going from memory so you may need to try to find it manually, Check the folders above for a corel folder and then look for a suitable exe file.

Once you have located the file right click the file and drag the file to the desktop - when you release the mouse button the will be an option shown to Copy, Move, Or Create Shortcut, choose the last option and clicking the shortcut will start the EXE file for you

Nice Nigel, that was one of the other avenues that I had in mind but it didn't come to me when I posted. Memory's not what it used to be.
