 Thank you Owen. That got me started.
 It is working perfectly with my default Firefox browser but I would like it 
 work in Internet Explorer on my secondary monitor. 
 The Help system says 'If you selected Web browser, you must decide here
 which browser to use, and how to invoke it, by entering the command that will
 be used to run the browser.'
 Can this be done for Windows XP Pro? If so, how?

In my version of GIMP 2.6.9 on XP the drop menu Help browser to use: 
contains two items: The GIMP help browser and Web browseer. As the 
help browser is not installed in the Windows version, I have to select 
the web browser. This means the default browser set on the computer. 
There are no possibilities to select between browsers. Perhaps some one 
know how to do it by running GIMP from the (DOS) command line? These 
commands (usually) are near the same as used for Linux.

 How do I use this? My Windows XP SP2 does not know about tar.
 I think I found the answer in the 'useless' thread. I unzipped
 the .bz2 file and pasted its 'en' folder into ..\share\gimp\2.0\help\
 but am now getting a The Help browser is missing with a Use Web
 Browser button. Any suggestions?

Maybe note and in
particular where it says;

Note: GIMP 2.6 on Windows does not include the Help Browser plug-in,
instead your web browser is used to display the help. You may need to
go to GIMP's Preferences, click on Help System and select Web
browser under Help Browser.
