    When trying to open Word Pad (in accessories) get the following message: "Could not load the RichEdit control DLL. The system may be low on memory or the file RICHED20.DLL may be missing or corrupt". Is there some way that I can get Word Pad back?
    Any help will be appreciated. Thanks, azlatch.

    Hi azlatch,
    Try start, settings, control panel.
    Click on add/remove programs.
    Click on windows setup tab at top
    Click on Accessories.
    See if wordpad is there and if it is checked.
    If it is checked uncheck it then hit add/remove
    When you have finished go back and recheck it and hit add/remove See if that works.
