    it was replaced so there was no chance i could change ,remove,replace .... the file.
    then i thought i would try finding the place were it stored all those images and ... i found it like ABC it was "[rootdrive]:\windows\HELP\Tours\" there were two folders inside one for the animated tour and the other one for the non-animated tour.i opened the folder named "mmtour" and guess what all that animated sh!t was made using flash5 and the good news was that they had not protected those swf files from import so anyone with basic knowledge of flash could import the files and use,change.... the files.
    to my great happiness the tour.exe file and the swf files imported some variables from local txt files so it was possible to ....(try finding the answer yourself)
