How can I regain access to help files on Windows?

Linny September 13, 2010

I cannot access help files or .exe eBooks. When I click on one of the books in the Help File Index I have a quick flash of a box that resembles the little window that comes up when you are going to download a file. Then nothing happens. Same thing happens when I try to read eBooks. Ziltch for Windows Help Files as well.

Spent an afternoon searching for a solution on Google, but couldn’t come up with a cause or solution. Help would be dearly appreciated!

    Thank you ha14 & Aibek for taking the time to answer my question!

    Only thing (and I should have stated this before) I am running Windows XP. Will the solution stay the same?

    Thanks again for your interest.
