Error starting MS Help

I get the above message whenever I try to use the Help facility in any of the MS Office XP Pro programs - Access, Word, Publisher.
I have recently had to recover Windows XP Media Edition, and then had to re-instal MS Office.
I have tried repairing Office, uninstalling and re-installing MS Office, all to no avail.
the actual Help files are present in Program Files/Microsoft Office/Office10/1033, and I can open them independantly, but the link from the Office programs has obviously gone!
Hope someone can help.

Does XP Media have the system file checker? It's always worth a run if so:

scannow sfc - how to use SFC.EXE (system file checker).

Repairing IE may also help - they files are pretty often linked: click here

I'll leave that until tomorrow - when I am more alert.
Thanks again.

Problem now solved - I uninstalled MS Office, re-ran the Windows Recovery and then re-installed MS Office.
