Make sure you save it to a local drive, and you might have to play with you security settings to allow active content to view the help files.

Heres the answer I found on the download  page

If you installed microsoft  Windows security updates MS05-026 or MS05-001,
the text in this file might not appear as expected. The messages "Action

1.. Click Download.

4.. Find the file on your computer and double-click it.
5.. In the Open File dialog box, clear the Always ask before opening this

I’ve got the same problem … it’s not just you. You should probably drop an email. Let me know if you want me to send a note to the folks I know in UA.

After you download  it, right click on the file and select Unblock. This was
a change done to some CHM files after SP2 (there's a KB article about it but
don't have the link handy).

downloaded  this one and got the same problems then unblocked the content
and it works fine now.

I choose Properties from the right click context menu and unblock was a
button at the bottom of the default tab. I can view it now.
