I've long had issues with .chm files not working including this one.

Your fix worked (on Windows 7, you have to look at the General 
Properties tab, and the Unblock option is at the bottom. Clicking 
Unblock greys it out, then it's Apply or OK).

But it seems unfriendly to say the least for a HELP file of all things 
to just flatly not work like without a word of explanation (or even This 
file is blocked; do you want to unblock it?)
