The only other thing to try would be to completely uninstall Office 2010, using the following method & then reinstall it.

Office 2010 can be difficult to remove completely, so follow the directions closely.

Before you do uninstall it make sure you have the Activation Key & an installation DVD.

I got the issue resolved. For those who have the similar issue on their Office 2010 installation, here is what solved it

1. Go to Control Panel

2. Click on Default Programs. You can also find it on START menu.

3. Click on Set program access and computer defaults

4. Select Microsoft Windows radio button and then click on OK


That does it. Your issues are solved. You will be able to access help files as you should.
