  1. Hi,

    I'm using win xp, and for some reason it stopped opening help file with *.chm extension. when trying to open I get the following error messege:

    can't open file: mk:mad:MSITStore:{file name and path}

    I tried both spybot and adaware - no help. even reinstalled IE but no luck.

    any ideas ?

    thanks,
    Aric

    Please read the following thread HERE. And post a HJT log into this thread.

    no really; what you need to do is to check the security properties for the chm, make sure you appear in it, and grant yourself all the rights available
