Everytime I try to do something with notepad, it opens the command interpreter window with title "c:\windows\system32\notepad.exe", then does nothing (windows still functions like normal), the only thing is that I have to do the "end task" thing or that window never goes away...
This just started a few days ago...I didn't install anything new, other than SP1...which notepad worked fine with for the first couple of days, then died.
Any ideas on how to fix this would be much appreciated.

Scanned for virus' lately? AV up to date? Scanned for spyware/adware?
Start > Run > sfc /scannow

I scanned it with the latest AVG and virus defintions (as of two days ago). Thanx for the sfc /scannow idea. The only spyware/adware found was some 'web savings from ebates' thing which it wouldn't let me delete. Any ideas onw how to delete? would that fix my problem w/ notepad?
Thanx for your help so far.
