Can't open help and support for Windows XP home edition

I can not open Windows help!Tried from start menu-no joy.Tried from Help in the menu of the control panel-still no luck.I am not sure where the help files are located and is it possible to restore them without having to re-install windows?

Both the above do the same thing and this is to set certain registry values.
To use them just double click on the file or run it like you do any of your programs or files.


HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\CLASSES\TypeLib\{FC7D9E00-3F9E-11D3-93C0-00C04F72DAF7}\1.0\0\win32
