Hello, Newbie to this forum.  Been having issues with I THINK notepad.  Over the last several weeks, each time computer is turned on, I get all of these windows saying cannot open whatever and they are all NOTEPAD related.  never used it, but when I look to see what processes are running, computer CPU is running at 100% and notepad is on there a LOT...I tried to delete Notepad, and also tried changing settings on processes, as in getting rid of anything that slows down pc on start up, but nothing is working.  I am hoping that I do not have to go into the registry to fix this, as that is alien territory to me.  any advice on what to do?

I believe your system is infected. I'm going to ask a staff member to move this to the appropriate forum - please wait for a response from the malware team.
