If you do not allow internet access from within the corporation or want the link to go to a site of your choice, you can set the Online Support to any URL using following registy hack:

Hive: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
Key: SOFTWAREMicrosoftInternet ExplorerHelp_Menu_Urls
Name: Online_Support
Type: REG_SZ
Value: “http://mycomputeraid.com

This tip applies to all versions of Internet Explorer. A very similar setting involves the default Internet Explorer search page which you access via the the “Search” toolbar button. To change the default search site:
