Default Problem opening .txt with Notepad

Hello everyone,

I have an issue with opening .txt files. When I click on a file I receive a message that "C:\Filepath\example.txt is not a valid Win32 Application" I have checked all the usual things like making sure that the Opens with is set to Notepad. Also Notepad works on its own. I can open Notepad and open a .txt file, so the program itself is working.

Anyone have any ideas what might be causing this?
