Do we need to find a replacement, like mklnk.exe?
Edit: Removed confusing info.

shortcut.exe seems to have been missing a long time -- I've just looked at a box with the "old" AP on it and it was missing a year ago too. Beats me how blaze ever got this to work!
WindowsUptime will still work without all this -- as a temporary fix you can always create your own shortcut.
There's no need to report this in the bug/fix section as well.

You won't find the one that blaze used online. I have a better suggestion.
Check your PMs

I put the shortcut in to the all user start folder turned the pc off and on a few time. Its works great but then I thought I would delete the shortcut just to make sure it wouldnít run at start up. Donít get me wrong I do want it running but I would like the ability to turn it off when I need to.
Yes you guessed it now with the shortcut gone the thing starts every time the pc is started. Any idea why that is and what I would have to do to stop it from starting.

WindowsUptime.exe will be starting from the Run key in the Registry. Check-out:
or, if not there, look at:
If you still can't find it, or are uncomfortable editing the registry, try using something like AutoRuns by Sysinternals.
Sysinternals is now owned by Microsoft, so try this link: AutoRuns for Windows v9.32 if you want to know more.
I have to add the usual warning about editing the registry (even if you are an expert):
There is no backup when you edit the Registry. Careless editing of the Registry could permanently trash Windows. If you do not know what you are doing, you could lose your data. Be careful!

You could try running it and UNchecking "Launch iconized in system tray on startup"

There is no tick box on myone so did as you recommended and deleted the reg that did the job.
As my autopatcher has the bad windows uptime how would I delete it from my USB drive. So when autopachter updates it will get the new version .

If you want to force a replaced, just delete the folder: modules\AddOns\WinUptime_x86_enu.apm_files
