I had IE 7.0 installed on my PC and I couldn't edit the source file of any html or htm file.
The problem was that whenever I opened the source with notepad (for example of an "index.html" file),
the source was opened in a file called "index[1].txt" instead of "index.txt".
Since the editing I did was actually made in this wierd file, the result was never reflected in the "index.html",
which stayed the same forever!
So, I couldn't edit any html page.

Now I installed IE 8 beta and changed the default editor back to notepad, only to see that it's the same bleep.
It opens the source in "index[1].txt" and I can't make any modification in my page because I can't open the "index.txt" file.

Has anybody came across the same bug...?
Any suggestion is welcome.
