Shortcut pathways to Windows Defender and Snippling tool?

FireFox 7, Windows 7.. I have made a toolbar button that allows me call up various programs directly from FF using these instructions: http://www.inspiredgeek.com/2010/12/06/ ... -a-retake/. Basically, the button contains the shortcut pathways to each program. The button recognizes a folder in Windows Explorer into which are placed the shortcuts to the desired programs. Everything works just fine except that apps from Windows don't (viz., Snipping Tool and Windows Defender.) When they are selected, get an error message that the file can't be found. I'm thinking that although I believe that I have the right pathway (clicking on these files within the button's folder does call them up), I probably don't. By the way, I'd also like to add Windows Explorer, but don't know its shortcut pathway.

Windows Explorer shortcut on tool bar, opens library
I tried searching for this, but all the terms are so generic I got billions of hits. There is a shortcut...... I guess it's "pinned" to the taskbar (is it a toolbar?). I could swear when I first installed Win7 that it was setup to be a shortcut to the "computer". However, it now always opens...
