if "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Accessories" doesn't exist, you may have to create a shortcuts from "C:\Windows\System32" For example mstsc.exe is for Remote Desktop.
-OR-
You can just go a pc which has that folder and right click each >> Properties to see what's the shortcut is linking to.
