I'm using Microsfot Office XP Pro with Frontpage and also use Windows XP Pro at the moment and today i went into Microsoft Word to search for a topic when it came up with the error, "Error starting MS Help"

This is the first time i've used the Help facility since upgrading from Office 2000 and the Help files there worked fine.

I've tried a repair and a reinstallation to no effect.

Please Help!!!

I've had this before and ended up reformatting the pc!
But it could be firewall blocking ms help access to internet or corrupted registry after upgrade of office.
I think during installation some part of the old help paths are left in the registry which conflict with the new installation.
I don't know the actual fix for the registry you could try a registry fix application if you have one!
All the best
