Are you referring to the Shortcuts on the desktop? It's not hard to due, just make sure the exsisting files are on the laptop, then go into Explore, find the .exe file, and right click on it and select Send To...then click on Create Shortcut. Unless she has like 50 shortcuts on her desktop, this shouldn't take long, infact, make HER do it.
Besides if the data is on the laptop, that means it has to be installed right? Well, just choose the "Create Desktop Shortcuts" at the end of the installation. And besides that, I don't see why SHE can't do it, if she needs it done so bad why can't she do it?
[EDIT] Also, in Windows XP, there's a utility that allows you to transfer Desktop information to another computer, I believe the utility is called, Desktop Ultility Transfer Wizard." Or somethign liek that. Should be under System Tools or somethign relavent to that.
