system information not accessible help and support

  [DELETED] 14:39 26 Aug 2006

Tried to access system information from xp accessories and got report "windows cannot open help and support because a system service is not running. To fix this problem, start the service named "help and support." We then go around in circles with same notice the result. Could this be from the recent upgrade that p.c. advisor e mailed recently. Have to admit don't use sytem information or help much.
