Chances are good you just did a straight copy/paste of these files into your Start Menu. Usually when you install a program, you are given a choice where to place the shortcut to the application. Since you have specialized yours into a folder called "Benchmarks", how did you go about placing the shortcut into the Start Menu? Did you copy/paste that folder into the Documents & Settings area so you could access these programs under the "Benchmarks" folder? It sure sounds like it to me. Since these files were just copied and pasted into the D&S portion for the Start Menu, you have a full access to the files since they were present during the paste.
