Here is a screenshot of my notepad file search. I'm just curious if there are any unnecessary files, folders..or whatever. I had experienced some trouble with my notepad last summer. I had to replace it. Something had gotten in and corupted it. Anyway I'm having some trouble again. And I wonder if there are any files-folders listed in this search that are not needed. Maybe leftover from previous version before last fix.

I apoligize for all the confusion concerning my screenshot. For whatever reason. I was unable to get thumbnail to work. Here is a direct link.

That a me or 98 machine? If so you just need the notepad.exe in the \windows directoryu. You can get rid of those other folders and zip file. Leave all the files, but the zip and folders can go.

No the legit notepad.exe is the one that looks like a notepad. If you double click it, it will open notepad. That shouild be in the c:\windows\ directory
