    In XP Pro when I try to use Help & Support I get an error message "Windows cannot find Helpctr.exe" any ideas? Where should it be?
    Thanks

    Helpctr.exe is Help and Support Center, and the file is located in: \WINDOWS\PCHealth\HelpCtr\Binaries

    ...and if the file was deleted (accidently or otherwise), I've attached a ZIP file containing the file. Just unzip it into the above mentioned folder.

    If you used the registry cleaner Easy Cleaner use the undo feature & restore the registry.
