  1. Right-click on your .CHM file
  2. Click on the General tab
  3. Go down and click on UNBLOCK, APPLY and OK
  4. Now you can open the document.

.chm help files opens and then closes

Hello to all, my particular problem is a little different from this in that the .chm file opens up and immediately closes. Can someone help me out with this? My OS is Windows 7 Home Premium.

You are always better to start a new thread rather then resurrect an older one, but let's see if we can help you here.

I would start by making sure that the correct file association is set for .chm files

Default File Type Associations - Restore

Scroll down to .chm

If no help, I would run the System File Checker

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

See if either of those help.
