I think this occured when I removed the foreign languages.

Now when I click on finder's help, all I get is a blank screen.

I tried to run software restore and the help menu is still not present.

Any ideas?

I would first try to delete the folder

~/Library/Caches/com.apple.helpui/

and see if that fixes it.
Nasrudin sat on a river bank when someone shouted to him from the opposite side: "Hey! how do I get across?" "You are across!" Nasrudin shouted back.

*bows down to you!

wow that did the trick! Thanks a bunch.

Can you educate me on exactly what I deleted and why that worked?
