delete temp files
delete temporary internet files

is your system up to date via windows update?

possibilities:
1) an installation of something has corrupted or has "broken" file association
2) there is presence of malware on your system

I am not sure why that error pic you posted would relate to notepad.exe as it shows.

can you get notepad.exe from another machine? That error message shows notepad.exe. Get it from another XP machine which is located in windows\system32.

Delete the old one and copy the new one in

Send big files the easy way. Files too large for email attachments? No problem!

There i zipped up my notepad.exe and uploaded it. I know it isnt corrupt since i keep my machine up pretty good. Try replacing that one over yours.

The only reason we thought it was notepad is because that error you posted is directed directly toward notepad.

Maybe try a repair?
