Hi there,

                If you can’t open you Adobe help application, I think your Adobe Photoshop CS4 is corrupted or there is a missing part, uninstall your Adobe Photoshop CS4 and try to install a new Adobe Photoshop application. Make sure that the application software that you will install is complete and working properly. Hope it helps.

This error is normally thrown when you’re using Photoshop CS4 on Microsoft Windows. The error is triggered when you open or access Help which then throws the message “There was an error launching the Adobe Help application. You may need to re-install the application and the Help component”. The problem is caused by missing or damaged Windows registry entries that store the settings for the HTTP.

One way of fixing it is to set the default web browser on your computer. To set Opera as the default web browser, start Opera and press ALT + P to go to Settings. Select “Browser” on the left pane and click “Make Opera my default browser”.

To set Firefox as the default web browser, start Mozilla Firefox then click “Tools” and then “Options”. In “General” on the left pane, click “Make Default” to set Firefox as the default web browser on your computer.

If you want to use Windows Internet Explorer as the default web browser, start Windows Internet Explorer then click “Tools” and then “Internet Options”. Select “Programs” tab and click “Make default” and then click “OK”.
