    Hello all,

    I looked for the answer, but didn't see it posted before. I have a 20" iMac G5 (rev B) running Tiger (10.4.2). In some of my programs, I have two 'Help' menus at the top of the screen. It definitely happens in Quicktime and Photo Booth (I, erm, got that from a room mate who recently purchased a new iMac). It's not a big deal, really, and I've lived with it for a while, but I would like to fix it if possible. While I don't know everything, I really don't think I need extra help. Any ideas?

    The two help menus appear when apple has realized you pirated some of their software. The truck will be over tomorrow to pick you and your computer up and take you to court. :p
    What's in each help menu? Do they drop down with the same options? I think I've had this prob before. Have you tried the basics? (Repair permissions, restart, etc)

    Have you recently installed divx? That was the problem for me seems that we need to wait for a new release until then just get 3ivx works fine for me you could also try vlc.

    Dylan got it right. This is a known bug, that was first reported back in May, just after the release of Tiger (like here), and has been a very common question the last couple of months. :rolleyes:

    Gee, searching? What is that?

    Thanks for the helpful comments, not so much for the same old "newbie doesn't search" crap. I searched the forums for different phrases involving 'multiple, help, menus' and nothing came up. I read a lot on MacRumors, and it never ceases to amaze me that people can be such pricks about not searching.
    For those willing to help, the two help menus have the same "(Program Name) Help (shortcut)" that they're supposed to have, there's just two of them. I do have Divx installed, and I'll look into DivxFusion.
    Sorry for being irate with you if you didn't intend the search comments to be nasty, but I always search before posting and only post when I don't find something.

    Yeah there is nothing worse than being pointed to a thread that doesn't actually answer your question. ;)

    DivX Fusion is the answer. HTH
