Anything that's listed on your credit report, if it's listed as unpaid, then paying it will help your credit score. However, if the items don't appear on your credit report then paying them off won't change the score.
If your friend loaned you money wouldn't the best thing to make things better be just paying it back? It's the same thing. It amounts to if you are trustworthy. That is the reason for the credit score system.
