clicking on one of them shows no results - at all, nothing happens. Help.

I understand that this help and Support Center does not appear.

It may be that the service has been disabled.

Follow these steps:

1. click on the Start button

2. click on run, type Services.msc

3. Locate and double click on help and Support

4. set the startup type to automatic

5 start the Service

Restart the computer and check the result.

Hope this helps

  • 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.

  • In XP, when you try to click on Help and Support Center, the message to start the service

    Windows XP Professional SP3 32-bit - my help and support center is missing. When I click, it says start the service named 'help and Support '. How do I do that?

    * original title - lack of help and Support Center *.

    Thanks for the help :) Also, when I open my computer or any other program like the trash, the bar on the left side of the screen with the options (i.e., in the trash, which allows me to empty the tray) isn't here... Is there anyway that I can get it? I thought it was something to do with the help and support center, but even after that I got help and assistance, that sidebar is not there...

    For this bar, open desktop (or any other folder). Go to tools-> Folder Options and in the general tab, check the show common tasks in the option box of records under the tasks column. The bar appears.

    I hope that helps!

  • "My external hard drive does not appear in Windows Explorer and cannot open 'Help and Support', an error message" Windows cannot open help and Support because a system service is not ongoing.

    Original title:

    Everything was fine until yesterday. Juice now, when I plugged the external HD into the USB port it does not appear in the 'my computer' window. It is recognized by the computer as it is present on the list of the "Disk Clean Up" and it also appears when I click on ' Safe Remove Hardware ' on the taskbar. But if she does not appear in the 'my computer' window I can't work with it or don't even know what it I have arquived in it.

    Trying to find a solution, I realized that same 'information system' to 'System tools' is also not available. Pops up a window saying that "Windows cannot open help and Support because a system service is not ongoing enforcement. " To resolve this problem, start the service named help and Support '. OK, I tried to open 'Help and Support' ' Start Menu ' and the same window appeared again to "not have a system service that runs". I don't know what her soul precisely and I have not the slightest idea of what I need to do to correct this 'disappearance' of Service 'system '. There is nothing without the appearance of HD in the window of thw work? Everything else works fine and the calculation is virus-free. What should I do?
