Try right clicking the icon and select properties.
Check the "Target" area. It should contain the file's directory.
The address should be COMPLETE for example "C:\Program Files\AVG\AVG2015\avgui.exe".
The directory "C:\" depends on which hard drive your file is and the file format like in this case is a program should have ".exe" at the back. If any of these is missing your short cut will not work.
You should also check on the compatability of the file / program with your OS.

Is it possible to have an iconI love your puzzles -I would like an Icon on my desk so that I wouldn't havehe address everytime I play - I've tried but can't

If you mean a link to a website address on your desktop, then right click on the desktop, point the mouse to "new" and wait for the submenu, and select "shortcut". It will ask you for an address or location. Enter, or copy and paste the website address that you want the icon to link to and press return. Next it will ask you to name it.....type in whatever you want the icons caption to be, and press return. That should put your new icon on the desktop. Test it to make sure it works. Hope this helps.

Acer cystal eye webcam

hi that would be simple if you find the folder in which the web cam icon is located right click on the icon scroll down to send another window should open up on the side then click on desktop(shortcut) this should put the icon as a short cut on the desk top.
the icon that you right click on must be the icon that acesses & activates the crystal eye web cam.

hope this solves your problem.
