Help and Restore will not work

    I defragged my registry after doing a clean with Reg Organizer. After rebooting, I have found two problems.

    1. The Help and Support Center will not open - I checked services and it is set to automatic.

    2. System restore will start but after reboot I receive a message that it could not restore. I tried several times using various system check points and my own restore points with the same message.

    I opened Reg Organizer and the backup folder was empty so there is no way to undo changes there.

    Any suggestions to correct this without doing a reinstall?

    I found the answer to my first question on another forum so here it is for anyone else:

    *Help and Support Center Script Fix
    Most registry cleaners disable Help by deleting registry entries they shouldn't. Download and run (double-click) this script to fix your help/support. http://www.dougknox.com/xp/scripts/fixwinxphelp.vbs

    Now back to resolving the second issue with restore.
