missing help files

  csp 20:18 18 Mar 2005

About a month ago I did a Ghost backup image of my C drive into my partition. About a week later, following a glitch, I restored the image back onto my C drive. It came back perfectly but minus the help files for all windows and windows related programmes (office etc,) When I do a search for [*.hlp] files I get about 36 in the results box. I have the same programme on my laptop and the search brings up 303! Does anyone know any way I can replace the missing help files on my desktop?

try running a system file check Go to Start/Run/Type sfc /scannow. you will need your XP Disc (I am assuming XP you didn't say.
