Notepad fails to start up...

C:\WINDOWS\system32>dir *notepad*
 Volume in drive C has no label.
 Volume Serial Number is 585F-A3A6

 Directory of C:\WINDOWS\system32

14/04/2008  06:42			69,120 notepad.exe
25/07/2009  21:35			27,364 Notepad2.ini
31/10/2008  01:00			27,540 Notepad2.txt
			   3 File(s)		124,024 bytes
			   0 Dir(s)	 896,950,272 bytes free

C:\WINDOWS\system32>notepad
The system cannot find the file C:\WINDOWS\system32\notepad.exe.

C:\WINDOWS\system32>cacls notepad.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\notepad.exe BUILTIN\Users:R
								BUILTIN\Administrators:F
								NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM:F

Running it under OllyDBG without modification, it works perfectly.

Unrelated - anyone else find the time it takes to load the start menu and the right click menu for files in explorer to be ridiculous?

The error message states "The system cannot find the file C:\WINDOWS\system32\notepad.exe"
Have you checked if notepad.exe is in your systems32 folder?

Yes - read the output of both "dir" and "cacls", and it works fine with Olly.
