    Hmmm,

    maybe you could try this:

    Click Start, click Programs, click Accessories, and then click MS-DOS Prompt.

    Type the following (where "C:\Windows" is your Windows installation folder) and press ENTER after each line:

    CD C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM
    COPY REGSVR32.EXE WBEM
    CD WBEM
    FOR %%f IN (*.DLL) DO REGSVR32 /S %%f
    WINMGMT /REGSERVER
    EXIT

    That's straight from Microsoft, so hopefully it helps. This is supposed to prevent you from getting "initialization" errors with Help Center, relating to errors made during installation of Windows ME.

    Hope it helps

    Was this recommendation from MS in an article somewhere? If so do you have the link. Sure would like to read it.
