Probably one on the XeteX/MikTeX packages is broken. Hopefully, it may

I know that Helvetiva is almost an Arial clone and I can select
Helvetica from TeX fonts from sans serif 's drop down menu, but I did
a research and found that urw-arial
located here: http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/fonts/urw/arial/  is an
Arial font pack for use with LaTeX. I need to know how to install it

I have the same limitation as you have. Please note that the URW A030 
Arial is not really Arial. The differences between Arial and Helvetica 
are described in

http://ilovetypography.com/2007/10/06/arial-versus-helvetica/
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Helvetica
http://www.ms-studio.com/articlesarialsid.html

When using the URW Arial, the G and R are the Arial ones, but the C, t, 
a, 1 are the Helvetica ones. You can actually even see that for a, t and 
1 on the sample text on page:

http://www.tug.dk/FontCatalogue/arial/
which also states that The font that is actually provided is URW A030.


I could notice that in latex code appear \usepackage{helvet} when I
select it in the drop down menu, so I think is possible to do the same
thing for the urw-arial. After all it will be just adding another font
to LyX.


If you nonetheless want to use this fake arial font, once you have it 
installed through MikTeX (which I think you have already), all you need 
to do is to add


\usepackage[scaled]{uarial}

to the preamble (in Document - Settings... - LaTeX Preamble).



I need to know how to do that... A tutorial or something please.

Please help!
Thankyou in advance...

PS: off-topic. You wrote Helvetiva is almost an Arial clone, but it's 
more the opposite.

You may be better off simply using Helvetica (and setting Sans Serif

MiKTeX database.
