Mac Help crashing OS 10.5.5
 
Hi all, it's a puzzle this one. I'm trying to access help on iCal sharing on MobileMe. iCal pointed me at Mac Help accessed through Finder.

When I click on Mac Help, the programme (only, not my computer) crashes with this: (I tried to copy the summary but it wouldn't copy)

Anyone recognise something that I can do anything about?

Tried to add the screen grab but don't know how to do that either . . .

Wish I could help, but I tried what you did today and it worked fine. I just updated to OS 10.5.5 two days ago.

Thanks Tarek - that tells me it's probably specific to my machine. I repaired all my permissions just in case but no joy.

I might just have to wait and see what happens.

I appreciate you looking.
