Your certain it's missing ?

Extract a new copy of Notepad from your CAB folders:

Click on START / RUN / SFC <type in

In the new window select 'extract file'
In that window type in notepad.exe
Click start,

In the next window type in>
RESTORE FROM: C:\windows\options\cabs
SAVE FILE IN: C:\windows

click ok,

You should see a message saying the file was successfully extracted ,

Now it should work for you,

Click start / programs / accessories / system tools / system information

Then click on 'TOOLS' , then open 'System File Checker'

Ok Arni,
That's how you do it~!

Double check that virus suggestion that Jwbirdsong has, there could be a connection unless you know you specifically deleted notepad somehow.

RavantVirus Scan
Bitdefender Scan
Trojan/Pest Scan
TrojanScan


Just For Reference:
Alternatives for reinstalling Notepad:
Start / Settings / Control Panel
Open 'add/remove programs'
click on 'windows setup' , click on 'accessories', click 'details' and put a check in 'notepad' - if it's found, click apply/ok,

Notepad Downloads:
Notepad Win 95
Notepad Win 98
Notepad Win ME
Notepad XP
