My pc uses windows xp, but i cannot access the help & support section. Ive tried going through the control panel as well as the normal route. What can i do to resolve this?

The "Help And Support" takes around 10 seconds to load on my system. Are you sure you are giving it enough time to load?

Yeah ive left if for over five minutes and still it doesnt load up.

Is it enabled in Administrative tools > Services?

Try a system file check, Start/Run/ Type sfc /scannow (Watch the space) you will need your XP Disc handy.

The only problem i have is that i dont have the original XP boot disk. I need to go where i can get a copy boot disk from.

You require the proper XP disk.

You may well need to do a Repair of XP (not a complete new installation) if scannow doesn't work.
