HELP :tazz: I was trying to clean up our c drive and have either moved (I hope :)) or deleted :) the files that let me add and remove programs, and then when I went to the Help program it said "windows cannot open Help and Support because a system service is not running to fix this problem, start the service named 'help and Support".

Can someone help or is this the wrong forum?

We will not help you anywhere on this forum, as you do not have a legal copy of Windows, or a legitimate product key.
