    Help not responding normally w/SR-1 (2000/SR-1 on Win2K)

    I recently moved from Windows 98 to Windows 2000 and when I installed Office 2000 I installed the SR-1 patch for the first time. Since that time, I have a problem with help; it is particularly noticeable in the VB Editor, but I think it recurs throughout Office. When I press F1, I get an hourglass for 10-15 seconds, but no help window. If I press F1 again, the help window appears on the toolbar, but it is behind the application window. Occasionally it will pop up after a few second, but usually I have to go to it.

    I can't imagine any good reason for this, and searches in the knowledge base have been frustrating (the words slow, slowly, delay, help, etc. appear in lots of articles). Any ideas?

    Just guessing - is everything OK with your language versions? Office help files are in language folders ( Microsoft OfficeOffice1033 for US English etc.) Try repair Office installation also (Help | Detect and Repair), if you didn't do it yet.
