Several of my applications are now returning a "File not Found" error message when I select the Menu help options. Even though the files are all correctly located in their respective folders and also open up when selected, I just cant seem to open them from within the program.

Any feedback will be appreciated.

You may need to rebuild the desktop. Hold down command (Apple) Option keys while starting up. Hold them down until the computer asks you if you want to rebuild.

If that doesn't work, you may need to reinstall the applications that are generating the error.

If that doesn't work, reply and we'll go deeper.
