Hi omarmallat,

here is a free .CHM creator
http://www.handyarchive.com/Web-Development/HTML-eBook-Compilers/618-Abee-CHM-Maker-freeware.html

The way I do it is:

Set the helpbutton property of your form to true.
Drag a helpprovider from the toolbox to your form. Set the property helpnamespace of your helpprovider to the .chm file.

set the property 'helpnavigator on helppropider' to KeywordIndex
and set the property 'Helpkeyword on helpprovider" to the keyword of your choice.

remember the keyword is case sensitive so it should exactly match the keyword in your .CHM file otherwise it will fail
