Windows 95 help file

I have had my Win 95b installed for almost 2 years and only recently I found that my Win help file is missing or corrupted. Error message asks for windows.hlp file which is not there nor can I find it on my OEM disk. Only 2 things that I have on my HD in Win folder are WINHELP.EXE and WINHELP32.EXE and they do not do anything. I was trying to d/l the above mentioned WINDOWS.HLP file from Microsoft and all over the place but could not find a thing.

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Partial Reinstall

This is the easiest way to retain most of your configuration settings. Everything should work as it did prior to after your done and it requires no install of applications and programs following the WIN95 refresh. It will fix quite a few problems but not
all.
   1.Insert the CD ROM in the drive and start setup. You may have to do this from safe mode or DOS. It is preferable to do it from WIN95 then safe mode and last choice is the DOS prompt.
   2.This is a standard install and will utilize you existing configuration files. You are likely to get several message during the install as to whether you want to overwrite newer files. My preference is to answer NO unless you have experienced problems with related applications and sub systems of WIN95.
   3.You may have to reinstall some of the WIN95 updates after completing this.

Thanks, I'll tryit. However, would it not be possible to d/l this specific file, i.e WINDOWS.HLP from somewhere to avoid the whole setup process?
