When I try to access the System Information tool from Start/Accessories/System tools/System Information menu item, I get an error message telling me that the Help and Information system is turned off(which it is), because previously when I tried to access this tool the Help system started up in its place. I know I have seen this problem solved somewhere before, but I cant remember where. Any ideas.
Thanks in advance.

Check and see if WMI (Windows Management Instrumentation) is started.

Administrative Tools > Services > Windows Management Instrumentation. Right Click and see.

Also, there are several free third party programs that do a very good job. There's a portable one called System Info that you don't even install. Just D/L it and run it from where ever (including a Flash Drive)
