A colleage has experienced a trojan named 'Killreg'. The trojan has been
cleaned but there now is a problem with Windows Help and Support (caused by
the Trojan or not, I don't know).
The Help and Support program runs but the Help and Support service is not
running and not present in the Services list.
Does anyone know how to initiate this service please.

Some info from Kelly's site

Why doesn’t Help and Support work?
http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/top10faqs.htm


<snip> "Could not start the Help and Support Service on Local Computer. Error 126:
The specified module could not be found" Restore Help and Support Service. Restore
Help and Support Service Keys.Also, make sure that the Help and Support Service is
running. Go to Start/Run and type in: services.msc. From there scroll down to Help
and Support and make sure the service is set to Automatic and is Started.

If the option is greyed out or Help and Support Service is not listed trying running
these two edits.
Restore Help and Support Service. Restore Help and Support Service Keys.

You may also opt to running the System File Checker. To do so, go to Start/Run/CMD
and type in: SFC /Scannow. This option forces Windows to scan all protected system
files immediately. <snip>
