check your group polici(s) if this is enabled:

user config\admin templates\start menu and taskbar\remove Help menu from start menu

check if your help and support service is running.

Sounds like you installed SP2.

Fix it like so:

1. Open a command prompt.
2. Navigate to %windir%\PCHealth\HelpCtr\Binaries
3. Run “start /w helpsvc /svchost netsvcs /regserver /install”
4. Once this command completes the Help and Support service should now appear in services.msc
5. Start the Help and Support service
