Help! I have accidentaly deleted my pchealth file. Therefore, I cannot access my Help file or menu. I desperately need "helpctr.exe". Is there anyone out there who would let me download thiers, or perhaps direct me to a site where I can access these files?

Look on your WinME CD...it is located in the Win_16.cab File

Many programs will allow you to extract from a cab file..I am especially fond of tugzip

Do you mean you deleted more than that? I don't follow you.

My Windows pchealth has been completely deleted. It is not there. "helpctr.exe" has been completely deleted. That is what I am in need of in order to gain access to my Help Center.

Help!  I have accidentaly deleted my pchealth file.....

View Post



I'm sorry, I misunderstood. You said FILE, not folder. I thought Helpctr.exe was your clarification. Extracting a file from a CD is easy enough, but this....

OK, here's the rub. While I know windows 98 2000 and XP backward and forward, I give winme wide berth and only deal with it when I have to. So I am not 100 percent certain that you can simply copy a PCHealth folder from one machine to another. I have never tried it.

In addition to running the help center, pchealth is involved in the file protection and system state manager function, though I am not certain how tightly intertwined it is. The reason this is important is that system state information includes (at least for win 2000 and xp) hardware and registry information that is machine specific.

So, it MIGHT NOT WORK. It might even be very bad.

I have a test machine and am installing winme on it....give me about 45 minutes and I will upload the folder in a compressed form to the following link--you should be able to uncompress it retaining the folder structure and drop it in the windows folder.

Remember, I am installing winme so give me some time....if you clink on the link and nothing happens, I am not done yet....patience

Guess What??????????????????????????????????


It WORKED! I cannot thank you enough for the time you've taken to help me fix this problem. Thanks to you, I can now enter my Help files. I guess these forums can be helpful. In the past, I've had no luck at all receiving successful responses. Finally, someone who has the skill to issue a simple resolve. Thanks again for your time and for caring at all.
