    Start, RUN, type Services.msc and hit enter.
    look for the "help and support" service and start it. see if that helps.

    thank you for your reply and i did as you suggested but "help and support" was not in the list of services. could it have been moved or removed?

    That's unusual that you don't have Help And Support in the services list.

    I've never worked on a XP computer where it wasn't among the list, and it's always on its default setting of "Automatic". :confused:
