Can't open help files? CHM errors?

Can't open Help files! So frustrating, but after some whipping around google posts, I found the solution that worked for me.

I hope this helps you!

Guideline to repair this issue
=====================

1. Go to C:\Documents and Settings\" SELECT USER nAME"\Application Data\Microsoft\HTML Help on the computer

2. Delete the hh.dat

3. Go to command prompt type

regsvr32 /u hhctrl.ocxr
egsvr32 /u itss.dll
regsvr32 /u itircl.dll

regsvr32 hhctrl.ocx
regsvr32 itss.dll
regsvr32 itircl.dll

itircl.dll solved the problem of search.(Try ‘regsvr32 /u itircl.dll’ otherwise

You may wish to make a batch file to run for you instead.
Also I found I had to run it twice to fix a problem.

Worked for me :)
