  • Help and Support service does not

    Original title: Windows XP Services
    I would like to first of all a service that is running, but when I try to open system information, I get a message that the help and Support service is not running.  How can I start the help and Support service if I can't in the system services?

    Help and Support doesn't have to be set to automatic for her to work.  You can leave the Manual value and it will start when it needs start (if he can).

    You will see only the message you describe if the H & S Service is disabled if your H & S subsystem is afflicted in some way.  If the H & S Service is not disabled, you have a different problem.

    You don't describe symptoms suggestive of a need to run sfc/scannow or symptoms suggestive of a need to register the hhctrl.ocx file, but at least he has a link to a Microsoft KB article in this answer MSE.

    You can unregister the file hhctrl.ocx and H & S will always launch very well (but the Index button will not work).

    These ideas don't make sense to me.

    Do try these things and see how they work.

    The Microsoft Security Scanner is a downloadable security tool for free which allows analysis at the application and helps remove viruses, spyware and other malware. It works with your current antivirus software.

  • Help and support service in services.msc

    When I try and open help and Support under XP, I get an error telling me that I need to start the help and Support service. When I go into services.msc to do this, the help and Support service is not listed

    A service help and Support missing does not fit the symptoms of a corrupt user profile.  Aid and the Support Service is at the system level and does not belong to a particular user, and if you think that your user profile is damaged, you better not delete unless you want to lose all the things belonging to the user that you delete.   This isn't a good way to manage a corrupted user profile or suspicious - unless you want that users angry!
    Have you ever used third-party applications on your system where the product description includes descriptive as sentences:
    cleaner, mechanic, detective, priest, optimize, clean up, tune up, speed up, set towards the top, compact, compress, faster, power, boost booster, guaranteed.
    The Center help and Support sometimes get broken with overzealous cleaning and there are a lot of things to 'try' who sometimes work and sometimes they are not. Sometimes people drop everything simply and never reuse Help and Support Center, but it can still be repaired.
    We can reinstall the missing help and Service support in two ways, let's start with the less complicated:
    Using Windows Explorer, find and locate c:\windows\inf\pchealth.inf.  This is the file for installation help and Support information.
    Right-click on the pchealth.inf file and choose install.
    You may be prompted to enter your XP installation CD as he seeks the installation files.  The files are on your XP installation CD, or, if you don't have any XP installation CD, files will already be on your system from the initial installation (if help and Support was working before) - you just tell the installation where to get them.
    You can locate the files on your system before you begin the installation, so that you know where to say look when he needs a file of installation.
    If you don't have an XP installation CD, change the dialog ' copy the file of ' (by clicking the browse and try again) to point to the folder appropriate for each file.  Usually, the files in these folders.
    dataspec. XML (c:\windows\servicepackfiles\i386)
    pchdt_w3.cab (c:\windows\pchealth\helpctr\binaries)
    HCAppRes.dll (c:\windows\pchealth\helpctr\binaries)
    atrace.dll (c:\windows\system32)
    If these files are not in the same place on your system, you need to do a search for Windows on your system for the file you need and point the installation in the folder appropriate for your system.
    Reboot your system to make sure that the installation is complete and check in Services now to see the status of the assistance Service.
    If the service help and Support does not work, right click, start it and then make sure that the properties are set to auto, reboot again and remember that it starts on its own.
    If for some reason that gets your help and your support Service installed (perhaps you do not find the files) you can follow the other instructions of Riou:

    Do not guess what the problem might be - understand and resolve it. I need YOUR voice and the points for helpful answers and propose responses. I'm saving for a pony!

  • Bluetooth support service does not start on VISTA

    When I go into the Services Panel it shows of Support Bluetooth Service is set to automatic but not started. When I try to start this service, it gives me error: 1053 indicating that the service has failed within a reasonable time. I have a MX5500 Revolution keyboard and mouse combo that works very well.
