    Mac help in finder


    When I open Mac help in finder it opens for a second then goes down to the dock, then closes itself down.

    Can anybody help

    I have repaired permissions but that did not help.

    also I have noticed my power botton button does not light up, I am sure it used too.

    other than that Loving my PB more every day.

    Cheers for help for what is more than likley a stoopid noob question :-)
    btw sorry for the rather vauge thread title, best I could come up with.

    com.apple.helpviewer.plist
    I don't know what tomorrow holds, but I know who holds tomorrow.

    The easiest way is to just use the search. But search for them one at a time of course.

    Select Find under the File Menu
    If you searh forů
    Name contains com.apple.help
    you will get a hit on all 3 (+ more, but don't delete the others)
