Vista Help and Support became ugly!

If you have noticed an annoying problem with Help and Support of Windows Vista, such as the images being missing and replaced with a red cross (X) or the pages lacking style and being displayed in the default (and ugly) Times New Roman font, then you need to get a registry fix. It also fixes a more severe issue of "Internet Explorer cannot download / from help"
When you open Help and Support center in Windows Vista, one of the following problems may occur:
  • Red X mark appears where the images are to be displayed
  • CSS styles are not applied to the pages in Help and Support
  • Error Internet Explorer cannot download / from Help occurs
Full details and solution here: Pages in Windows Vista Help and Support are not displayed correctly

Disclaimer: Always open all downloaded REG files in Notepad and verify them for any malicious content before merging them to your Windows registry. I do not accept responsibility for broken Windows installations after application of the downloaded REG files.
