Help and Support non-functional

New installation Win 7x64 ultimate from original CD.
Help and support lets you search but always returns 0 results.
Files seem to be in place in Windows/help.
Rarely use it so not re-installing.
Anyone seen this before?

Go to the settings and set to online help and see what happens.
Also check Windows Update and see if it displays anything related to Windows Help.

Well, it was set to 'online'and because I was using all my bandwidth no results appeared!
Thanks for the tip. I'd never noticed the settings before.

As far as I know Windows Help was discontinued sometime ago as Windows 7 is not fully supported any longer. It now only receives Updates & security changes to keep it going till 2020.
