"Action Canceled" when attempting to view help pages from server

Chm files are imbedded in our applications, which are accessed on the server.
When I open the file (which I can do), There's an "Action Canceled" message
where the topics should be. I can see the TOC, and the Index, and those work
- I just can't view the pages themselved.

I just installed XP updates today, so I'm guessing that's what's causing
this - how do I fix it?

Usually, a CHM file error is due to a corrupt 'HH.EXE', Running MSCONFIG.EXE would show you an "Expand File" button, which you could
use to repair HH.EXE

The same thing is happening with our help files stored on a server. A
temporary fix is to copy the file you are trying to access to your
desktop, or anywhere local -- you will then be able to open it. Let me
know if you figure out a permanent fix.
