When I try to use my Windows Help and helpctr.exe gets launched, my McAfee virus protection alerts with the headline "Suspicious Scripting Activity" detected. Details say RegRead is trying to read a key from the registry. If I temporarily allow this, I immediately get an alert that helpctr is trying to WRITE to the Registry. At this point, I "Stop" the script, which results in my attempt to get help being ignored.
McAfee Viruscan has no complaints doing a complete scan of the system. Is this normal behavior for the help center, or do I possibly have a worm or virus in helpctr.exe?
