Hi everyone. My setup is windows xp professional fully up to date, all windows updates. My system is protected by NOD32.


Since today, my notepad stopped working. I can't open a txt file, I can't start notepad from start menu nor from in explorer (windows\notepad.exe).

Also, my nod32 icon is missing in the toolbar. I tried to start it from start menu (the control center) but nothing happened.
NOD32krnl is running though (as you can see in processes list).
I now got the nod32 on demand scanner to work, but nothing yet.
I also did a hijackthis scan, since I couldnt open the log file i downloaded notepad++, and everything was green/shield.

I'm also doing a scan with regcleaner & ad-aware, but nothing seems to help. Google is not much of a friend either today...

Can anyone help?

Thx in advance!

grtz

Try Kelly's Korner.

Restore Notepad.exe - #326 on the left.

Try here for NOD32 :

Clik >>> Nod32 CC in Taskbar does not load

FWIW: Reg cleaners can sometimes be too agressive & end up being more trouble than they are worth. Things can get removed from the registry that could end up hosing your system, or at the very least, causing problems that prove difficult to track down. This may or may not be a direct result of what is happening with your computer, but I would suggest avoiding them as your computer will run fine if you don't use them.
