Windows XP Services - Help and Support Service

Windows XP Services - Help and Support Service



Microsoft Description:

Enables Help and Support Center to run on this computer. If this service is stopped, Help and Support Center will be unavailable. If this service is disabled, any services that explicitly depend on it will fail to start.

Importance of Help and Support Service

  • This connects to the online help via Microsoft available from the Help and Support option on the Start Menu.

  • The help service supports the Help and Support Center application and enables communication between the client application and the help data it accesses. This includes access to stores and services such as the taxonomy database that contains metadata and information about the help topics, the support automation framework that enables data collection for registered support providers, user history and preference information, and the search engine manager. When a user is interacting with the Help and Support Center features like search, index, table of contents, and so on, the service allows for data transaction that supports all of these features.

  • If this service is set to manual, launching Help and Support in the user interface will start this service. Disabling this service renders the Help and Support Center essentially unusable and the user will receive a message Windows cannot open Help and Support because a system service is not running.
Status:

what is the deal with the browsers these days. I can only use IE on https:// pages. No other browser will work. And now Firefox needs a proxy. The other browsers are working fine. For your info, since I removed my protection like AGV my computer runs so much faster and no viruses.

Hi Scott W Kelley,

When your able to view https:// sites in IE then you should be able to view those even on other browsers. By making some simple changes to your browser settings you can do this. To view Secured Sites you have to Enable SSL 3.0 in internet properities. Before telling you navigation i would like to know in which browser your facing this issue?
