Recently, my Windows (XP) help viewer has been displaying most CHM's as their source as opposed to rendered pages. For example, if I open the help for Window Media Player, I get a popup at the top of the viewer window that reads "This webpage might not be displayed properly. The content of the webpage does not match the type specified by the server. Click here for options..." In the options is a choice to "show restricted content." If I choose that, then I get a "File Download - Security Warning" window with buttons to open or save the page. Only after clicking "open" do I get to see the page in its correct form.

Now, if I open the help for ACDSee, and some other apps, I don't get that popup warning, but what I do get is just the XML code for the help pages. There's no option to view restricted content, etc.

Can anyone help? Please?
