    I installed a program Spy Sweeper but when I try to run it I get a message:
    This application has failed to start because hhctrl.ocx was not found. I went
    to search and it found this file in Windows\Service Pack Files\i Type
    ActiveXControl. Any help to get this program running would be appreciated.

    Start>Run>type in:-
    regsvr32 /u %windir%\system32\hhctrl.ocx>ok
    regsvr32 %windir%\system32\hhctrl.ocx>ok

    if that doesn't help then:-
    If that doesn't help, you should install this one:

    HTML Help Update to Limit Functionality When It Is Invoked with the
    window.showHelp( ) Method

  4. That's what I was looking for. It's funny how these newsgroups work.
    You're looking for something can't find it and by golly someone else at the
    same time is looking for something similar and the experts here just do the
    right thing. Thanks.

  5. Just as I thought S Sengupta. I wasn't able to access any ms-its://
    protocols in Help and Support in Windows XP
    SP1. My Windows XP CD-ROM came with SP1 integrated in and these types of
    links NEVER worked. But
    as I was trying to fix this issue and nothing worked I started to thinking
    it was this:

    issue that arose from patches put out by Microsoft for Internet Explorer.
    And sure enough I applied that patch
    for Windows XP SP1 Professional and they now work. Again thanks.
