Does someone know where i can download manuals for Sysinternals VMMap & Process Explorer? As the help does not work within either application and i am unable to locate any documentation within their website.

Out of curiosity, do you have the .chm files in the same folder?  E.g. Process Explorer comes with 3 files: eula.txt, procexp.chm and procexp.exe.  The help file reads the .chm file, so if you've deleted it then no help.  You could also double-click on a .chm file to open it.  Try with this one.  I had to rename it to a .txt to upload it, so just rename it back to a .chm.

I do have a .chm file and tried to double click, however upon opening it and selecting anyting within the contents tab, i get address is not valid on the righthand side.

Also tried your the file you uploaded and got the same error displayed.

Bugger, sounds like something's wrong with the way your machine reads .chm files.
Here's an online manual for PE http://www.downloadatoz.com/manual/pr/process-explorer/Overview.htm
Sorry but I just can't find one for vmmap.  It's not as common, so it doesn't really surprise me.  There's a number of programs that convert chm to pdf etc.  They all seem to cost, except there's one in this list named CHM Decoder 2.1  http://www.freedownloadscenter.com/Best/chm-to-pdf-free.html

Place the .chm file on a local drive rather than a network drive.  Due to security changes they won't run correctly from network drives by default.
