MARSCORE.DLL does not exist on XP. MARSCORE.DLL is not an XP file.
Missing MARSCORE.DLL has nothing to do with your problem. I do not have
MARSCORE.DLL and I do not have your problem. Keep reading to find out why
Help and Support thinks MARSCORE.DLL is missing.
[[for all of you who are having the "marscore.dll not found" problem...I had
the same problem and finally got it fixed....go to c:\windows\inf
find the Pchealth.inf file
right click it and choose install
that will reinstall the help and support center
if you get a message that says
"insert service pack CD" just hit cancel and it will ask you if you want to
skip this file
say YES... do this whenever it comes up and it will finally finish
hope this helps...it worked for me
sorry ...forgot to say that you need your setup disk and when you begin
installing you will have to point the install toward your i386 folder
hope this helps

[[I've got XP Home. Thanks to fausspass for getting me started on this fix.
Find Pchealth.inf in your C:\windows\inf folder, right-click the file, and
select install. Insert the winxp cd and point the installer to the i386
folder. The installer is looking for a specific file; it will be the only
file in the directory that is visible. After it begins the installation, the
installer will then ask for the XP SP1a install cd. Instead of inserting the
CD (I didn't have it), select the C:\windows\servicepackfiles\i386 folder;
only one file will be visible. Select it. The installer will then ask for
one final file. Do a search for it in the C:\windows folder. Then point the
intaller to that file and you're done.
I don't have the exact file names... I was just trying different things to
see what worked, and this did. The above instructions should get you

[[...the thing is it's not marscore.dll that the system needs in XP but for
some reason known only to Microsoft that's what it asks for.]]
Get rid of the MARSCORE.DLL that you downloaded, you don't need it.
If the above info doesn't help, see this...
Reinstalling Help and Support Center in Windows XP
Hope this helps. Let us know.
