..but I can hardly understand your post, did you type it on a mobile phone?!

I assume you mean the program compatibility in windows xp? Which program are you trying to set compatibility for ?

..sounds like there's a problem with your Windows XP Help and Support Center. If you go to the start menu, do you see a "Help and Support" option there? What happens if you click on that?

This seems to suggest how you do it:

(taken from: click here)

Go to Start >> Run and type in: helpctr -regserver

To reinstall Help and Support:

Go to C:\Windows\inf\pchealth.inf. Right-click and choose install. Have your XP CD available.

Note: The folder is hidden by default. Go to Start >> Run and type in: control folders. View: Show hidden files and folders and uncheck "Hide extensions for known file types".

Did this solve your problem?
