Missing Help & Search on XP.

  Sparky3327 19:36 16 Oct 2006

Oops, got muddled a bit if you saw my last thread.

My Help and Support bit through the Start menu is no longer available, the option is there, it just doesn't happen.
Also, the Search option from the same menu is faulty. It appears but not fully and won't work.
I'm on XP SP2.

My Computer on desktop - right click

Manage - click

Services and Applications - Double click

Services - Double click

Look at Help and Support - Is it Automatic, manual or disabled?

It says it's automatic.

Hi, XP - a simple System Restore should do the trick.

Is it actually 'started' under status?

Have a look click here

It does say started.

Technotiger - I would do a system restore but I can't get to the help bit where its located. Is there another way of doing it?

System Restore - go to Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Recovery

System Restore I meant, not System Recovery ... though I suppose that is the same thing really:)

Thanks, it did the trick!!

Thanks to all who offered help.
