  • Help and Support does not work as you wish

    Original title: Help and Support Center

    I'm finding that doing a search using Help and Support Center search box, looking for is more responses on the microsoft site, as it has already done. This aid was dropped for Microsoftxp home version 2002 service pack 3 , or is there a problem that I don't know about my system? Any help or information would be appreciated.

    For those who have experienced this problem

    I note that all solutions have been validated, IE

    1 re - install & support.

    2. run SFC/scannow,

    3. create a new user profile by means of microsoft suggeted,

    "Are not, (I repeat, not) work to solve this problem

    The only solution I've found that works is to

    1 create a new user

    2. move ( NOT copy) all of your files and folders in My Documents,my music, my pictures, and my videos folders of your damageduser profile for the new user profile in place corresponding installs under this new profile.

    3. do not copy or move hidden files or folders that you do not have created and hidden from yourself.

    4. you must also ensure you save settings, emails and contacts (contacts already in the .pst in Outlook file) by using the appropriate method for your e-mail program to allow for the recovery of these in your new profile.

    5. you can export your Favorites RSS (and biscuits)Internet Explorer under your old profile to a file in your new profile, and then import them from your new profile, after that you run Internet Explorer from here.

    6. don't worry about the programs, they are available to all users.

    I hope this can help someone else, who had the same problem I did.

  • Windows XP Help and Support does not work anymore!

    Help!  One day, when I clicked Start and then click Help and support , nothing's happened.  Is there anything, after that I clicked it that nothing came.  There was no error message nothing.  I tried to back up using windows Explorer, but could not get it to come.  I ran Microsoft Security Essentials scans (I use Security Essentials) and two online programs for viruses and dracovenii.  I don't remember anything that might perhaps explain this.

  • Help and Support does not work does not correctly when you are connected to the Vista administrator account

    Version 6.0 (Build 6002: Service Pack 2)

    I have the same problem exactly as described Flashimator don't except this: the problem occurs only when I am logged into the administrator account.  Support seems to work normally in my user account.

    I should add that my HP laptop has an OEM program which seems to be an overlay on the Windows Help.  It is also not available in the administrator account.

    (HP Pavilion dv9260us, Vista Ultimate x 64, Intel Core 2 Duo T7200 @ 2.00 GHz, 2 GB RAM)

    Thank you.

    PS It is often more important to have help available when logged in as an administrator as I do only when I have to (as in the resolution of problems).

  • Windows in Help and Support does not

    My Windows Help and Support function has stopped working.  When I try to launch Help and Support in the start menu (under Vista), I have the message

    "Not found in the help topic, this content under construction, we have couldn't recover the reqested topic."

    To anyone who has this same problem, I have found a solution!  I created a new user account, and when I registered under this new account, I was able to access my Windows Help and Support finally!  To create a new user account, follow these steps:

    1. click on the Start button and then click Control Panel.
    2. click on classic view in the left panel.
    3. double click on user accounts.
    4. click on Manager another account.
    Note: Click 'Continue' if the window (UCA) user account control prompts.
    5. click on "create a new account".
    6 type the account name and select an account type, the administrator or Standard user (I used administrator, do not know if it works with a Standard user account).  Then, click on create an account.
    7 restart the computer, and then sign in using the new user account.  Your help and Support Windows should now be available.

    PS Thank Sabrina Shen to Microsoft Support for this solution (* address email is removed from the privacy *).  She was helping me with another question (I was unable to access the Microsoft Update site), and I found that the solution worked for this problem, also.  Thank you, Sabrina!

  • Help and Support does not all links - _ error message

      The page cannot be displayed
      Cannot display the page you are trying to view. Maybe it's because:

    • If you try to view this content on the network, there may be network congestion or a problem with your connection.
    • There could be an error in the address of the page.
    • The page may not be available.
    Please check your network connection or try another page.

    Do you have any service pack installed on the computer?

  • Search functions and help and Support does not properly in the start menu

    If I click search on the start menu, it opens with a small dog who sits down and nothing else. If I click on help and Support, I see the hour glass for a nano second and then nothing happens.

    My search function is back (with my dog).  Seems to have come back after re-installation of XP Pro.  However I have other problems re: my post today.

  • KDL-60NX720; Launched the browser WEB and TV BRICKS! 4 RED flashes and support does not work

    I had this KDL-60NX720 for about 4-5 years, solid as a rock. Rarely used TV Apps, hooked up to Roku and looked at from time to time of movies in 3D from NTS Network Sony TV APPs.

    Today, I went on television and launched WEB TV browser, BIG MISTAKE. The State of TV bar off for 5 minutes, so I decided to turn off the TV and went outside. Came back a few hours later and the TV is over BRICKED.

    Flashing lights RED (4 times, pauses, repetitions). Turns on for 2 seconds, then turns OFF, can't the factory reset. Same sequence of flashing. Uplift of my entertainment system all unplugged each HDMI cord and followed every possible diagnosis Voodoo that Sony has recommended.

    Called and chatted with support. Downloaded the firmware on USB and plugged into the back. Waited 30 minutes. Same question above. Now 4 hours later, my life is in disarray and the TV is dead. Live sports game is on Roku and cannot look at anything. It's the weekend, Sony support just went offline.

    Past $ 2500 on this TV. Now I think if Sony will be able to help, or carry this TV from the wall bracket and drive him to the technician that will require more than a new purchase.

    What do Sony?

    Thanks for sending the link to United States service centers. According to my note, I live in the Canada.

    And have already looked at service Canada, 3 of the 4 centres centres have some negative reviews on Google. Not sure if Sony addresses the quality of service to their partners as well.

    End of the road for another loyal customer of Sony and all of its network and friends/family. Too bad.
