Default Windows Help and Support

Hello,

Is there a reason my Help and Support link does not work off the start menu? I seem to remember a registry fix to allow Help and Support to work...but I forgot it.

Can anybody help:

1. Why do I lose the ability to go to Help and Support?

2. How to fix this?

Thank you!

Perfect! Thanks again Talldude. I guess EasyCleaner swiped it out of the registry, but there is a tweak on this website that fixed it.
