thanks CJ ,funnily enough i had just finished reading it when i checked my thread and saw your post.
from what i can make of the article is that i have to use winhlp32. exe
but i dont think that is what is needed here ,at least im not sure as help and support should just open when clicked via start and then allow me to search for help topic,
it wont.

to be honest whats puzzling is that after the first time i noticed it woudnt start i did a system restore and that fixed it,it ran fine as it always has. so what is stopping it again perhaps its corrupt and fsc will help .
I should mention i had to do a startup repair about a week ago and that may have some baring on it. so i guess sfc tomorrow .
as the issue is on desktop pc and im on laptop at present.
