XP Mode serious problem

Hi, I'm up the creek! Win 7 has lost almost all my shortcuts. I can restore most of them but have a big problem with Windows Virtual PC and XP mode. I someone can kindly give me the location and name of the two executables (Virtual PC and XP Mode) or the links to them I'd be most appreciative. I'm working on my notebook and away from home. I can't reinstall because I don't have my XP installation DVD here. Any help please?

Hope this helps,
