Hi all, is this file (12k) an XP file??

It says it is.

Version 5.2.3790.2453

I dont know if this file is the prob, or Nerosmart
(Part of Nero).

If you click on the ? in Nerosmart
for help (I think thats what its for), this html
help executable loads, then freezes the system.

And the only way to fix it, is to reboot / press
the reset button.

Whats the point of this file, if the only thing
it can do is freeze the system!

What else uses this file, so I can check whether
it can open without freezing?

I've scanned my system, and I havent got a trojan/virus
etc. So, why would this file freeze?

HH.EXE - Microsoft® HTML Help Executable (in %Windir%) is a legitimate
system file. See if this advice helps:

Clearing the hh.dat and IE's TIF folder. Ignore the "Windows 2000" related
part:

As you've been told hh.exe is a legitimate Windows file. But
check out
http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/w32.dexec.html

just in case you have the hh.exe they mention there.

Nope, I havent got a trojan.

Cant find any of those entries on here.

Deleting the hh.dat file didnt help.

It still froze.

Might be a restriction of XP SP2.

According to one of those links Ramesh gave
in the previous post/reply.

I think I found out what the prob MAY have
been.

I use a DVD program and one of its
file assocs is .dat. After, I reformatted the hdd, and
unticked this option, it seem to fix the hanging
with hh.exe!!
