I'd guess that second one should be C:\Python23\Lib... ?
However the installer should have set up the menu shortcut to
point to the right place anyhow.
Try right clicking the IDLE menu item and selecting properties.
Yours should be similar.

Check the path in the shortcut points to the file it claims
to - idle.pyw.
Wherever that file lives is where it should point.
I assume the interactive prompt works OK from DOS?
And that typing python at the Start->Run dialog works OK?
Finally try navigating to idle.pyw in windows explorer,
double click on it, does it start?
If so drag a shortcut onto the desktop, or onto the Start button.
See if the new shortcut works.
