I need to do a Restore on my XP Pro system, but when I click on Help nothing
happens. How can I do a restore if I can't start Help?

Thanks

Do START>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore and then
choose Restore My Computer To An Earlier Time. Choose the restore point to
go back to. That may also clear the Help problem. If not, post back.
