Every time I try to run the System Information application (Start --> All Programs --> Accessories --> System Tools --> System Information), the Help and Support Center application runs. I had checked the System Information tool's target icon (msinfo32.exe). When I click it's target icon, I still get the Help and Support Center.

This is what I did.
1. Turn On PC as normal
2. Wait for prompt error to show up
3. When it appears, Run Task Manager (here you can see the task running the Error Prompt)
4. Right Click on the task and Choose > Go To Process (will take you to processes Tab)
5. See the highlighted Process, Right Click and Choose Open File Location
6. Windows Explorer will appear and you can see the Application Folder (name of application)
In my case, a 'browser toolbar application' was trying to auto initiate itself
7. Open Uninstall Programs > Search for Application Name > Uninstall (NOTE: PLEASE DO NOT UINSTALL IF THE PROGRAM IS A CORE FILE like Windows related program)..
8. Restart PC.....its gone :)
Do a system restore. Click start > program > accessories > system tools > system restore.
Restore it to a known good date when your computer was fine.
Click on start, then programs (win xp) or all programs (win 7). Find accessories and click on it. Then find system tools and click on it and you will see system restore and click on it.
After clicking on system restore, follow the prompts and choose a date. The application will complete the restoration process and reboot your pc when finished. Once the pc restarts the process is complete.
