Windows 7: Why does excel offer the use of hyperlinks ?

Why does excel offer the use of hyperlinks ?

I link a to a picture so it will open up in the windows 7 photo viewer so I can copy the picture and send the picture to a cleint. Nice work flow for sales. Nice way to attach information to a picture.
I make a link to a picture to C:\MT folder and sometimes excel wants to change my link to:

..\Users\MTC%20COMPANY\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Users\MTC%20COMPANY\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Excel \

Even if I copy all the pictures to this crazy folder it says excel cannot open the specified file even though its right there in that crazy place.

So why does excel offer hyperlinks when excel wont leave them be. ?

Making unchangeable hyperlinks in excel

Is there a way to make a hyperlink in excel that can not be changed ? Excel likes to change what the links say so maybe there is way to make a link in excel to a file that excel can not change. ?
