Windows 7: Office 2007Word/ Excel wil not display Help Menu

Office 2007Word/ Excel wil not display Help Menu

I am running Office 2007 (in x86) on Windows 7 and when I try to open the Help menu in Word or Excel I first get a dialog box that asks me if I want to save a file called transitions.htm. No matter if I say Save or Cancel the Help box opens blank. It says it is "connnected to Office Online," but will not display topics, find topics typed into the search field, or hyperlink to glossary topics. Any ideas.

It didn't work :(

Thanx for answering Irene, but it didn't find anything wrong. I also tried a repair from the Control Panel and that didn't work either.
