I have no idea why, but every time I open Notepad on my new computer (Windows XP), it will begin to run like normal, then abruptly close without any warning.

Does anyone know what could be causing this problem?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Do you get any error messages when it happens?

Are you trying to load a large file in it?

I often do not even have a file loaded when this occurs. I just simply open the program, and without warning, it exits.

For example, it will close with a blank document open, while I'm typing, while I'm saving a file, or any other time that I try to open the application.

There is no warning, it just closes.

Any help?

Can you look at your application event log and see if any errors appear? I've not heard of this behavior with Notepad before.

I have checked the Event Viewer log for application errors and left the application open while the error occurred, then refreshed the view and no errors were found.

I'm looking in the Application area of Event Viewer right now...

There were no error messages, and no information on what has just occurred.

Is there some way that I could re-install the application to remedy this problem?

I'm really curious as to what is going on...
