Use Windows XP Pro and have lost my help pages when I go to the start button!

Any ideas on how to get back? Can I do it online/via file transfer/disc?

Try this, Start, Run, type in services.msc and click OK. Scroll down to Help and Support and double click it. Click the Start button in the dialog box and change the Startup type to Automatic.

Go to Start, Run and type in regsvr32 hhctrl.ocx (note the space), then click OK.

The help&support doesn't come up in that list i'm afraid!

Did you try my second suggestion of registering the ocx file?

Also, I vaguely remember this or a similar problem being corrected in a Microsoft fix. Are you up-to-date with critical updates?
