As for the hyperlinks, here's the relevant MS article: You Cannot Open New Internet Explorer Window or Nothing Happens After You Click a Link

Start by registering Urlmon.dll as detailed in there. That's the most frequent cause.

As for the Help and Support problem, this is almost certainly unrelated. Here are a couple of things you should try:

Go to Start/Run, type in: control folders and press Enter.
On the "View" tab, check 'Show hidden files and folders' and uncheck 'Hide extensions for known file types'.
Click OK.

Now go to C:\Windows\inf\pchealth.inf. Right click the file and choose 'install'. Have your CD handy.

If that doesn't do the trick, try running this script:

If still no joy, go to Start > Run, paste the bold into the box and click OK:

helpctr -regserver (there's a space following 'helpctr' )

You ought to get a "registration succeeded" message

Also try running this one:

regsvr32 jscript.dll
