Help with creating shortcuts

Hi all, I have just started using stacks with rocket dock and its fab but i am having a little problem creating some shortcuts for certain apps. I have created a folder in my documents with the shortcuts i want in there, i have then put this folder onto my doc but when i try and open one of the shortcuts through the dock for example microsoft security essentials it wont open. The same happened when i tried to create a shortcut for the windows defrag program, but all the other shortcuts work fine. Have i done something wrong?

Hope someone can shed some light for me

Many thanks

Shortcuts need to be created a certain way with Windows 7. The shortcut tutorial section should help you make them better. Click on the one named shortcuts upper right.

Hi mate thanks for that, i have looked through all 9 pages but cant seem to find a simple guide on how to create a shortcut for disk defrag. The shortcut i created works when i open it from the folder in my documents but when i click on the folder on my dock and try and open it it doesnt load up!! I will have another look tho if not google will be my friend i hope

I just choose the Start>All programs>Assesories>System tools> Disk defragmentor> then right clicked and then choose "pin to taskbar" or I could send to desktop "Create shortcut".
