What the help is going on?
My help center, or mac help, when launched from the Help menu, does not load... instead it flashes for a millisecond and then loads Internet Explorer, and then IE yields an error. I don't get it!

I even clean installed 9.1 twice to no avail... same dang problem.

ALSO:
A little problem, but slightly annoying: in the Sound control panel, behind the "Main Volume" text it is bright white and everything else in the dialog is gray-ish. Kinda ticks me off. =)

Any solutions? Thanks!

Maybe the Desktop file needs rebuilt?

I've done that countless times.

just a few thoughts... perhaps try trashing the file Help Viewer from the help folder and/or the Apple Help Prefs folder in the preferences folder. both can get corrupted info, but i guess should have been replaced with a clean install. otherwise, maybe try reinstalling help from a new system cd.
a well designed kaleidoscope scheme or theme can correct glitches like that in the sound cp (i haven't seen it yet since i never go without one).

oops... meant Help Center as the file to trash rather than Help Viewer (the app, don\'t delete! http://forums.macnn.com/cgi-bin/smile.gif). Help Center just stores the current info for startup settings for Help Viewer. really need to register to enable editing...
