    If I try to open any Help Files (the little document with a yellow ?)...it freezes, with a "Not Responding" sign....this happens with any help file....ZoneAlarm Pro Help won't work...AVG help won't work...IZArc Help File won't work...

    I'm not an expert, but I assume the "Help Viewer" is a Microsoft Program and these programs just write a file that can be opened using the "Help Viewer" So I guess I need a new Help Viewer? I have my XP Pro Installation CD...so if I have to fire it up and replace certain files, I can do that.

    Thank you in advance for your help!
