Win XP help files gone missing .........where?

  PhilBoy59 11:46 27 Aug 2005

I have been a bit heavy with a duplicate file remover software. I think Ive erased my Help files as F1 and Help support no longer run and helpctr.exe is missing can you help me put em back from somewhere. My OEM win xp cd is not much help or even SP2.

I am a full registered user not a pirate

Start-Run and type in "sfc /scannow" (without the quotations and note the space before the "/")

You will need your WinXP installation disk handy.
