I first noticed the issue this morning when I tried to remote into a users box. I found that somehow the option has been removed from my system after researching and checking the registry. I assure you that I haven't removed or deleted anything that would affect that. I have tried updates and a manual script to reinstall, any sugeestions before I blow this thing and reimage?
Here is one of the errors: windows cannot find 'helpctr.exe'  
Thanks!!

Is it possible that some kind of registry cleaner has been run on some of these machines?
