What, the error message you get says that notepad.exe is unavailable? Not found??
Well, just copy notepad.exe from another machine and paste it into the C:\WINNT directory on this machine.
Hopefully, this is the problem, and not a Registry error.

After the error, I'm told to install a printer, but my printer is installed as I can print from other applicactions e.g. word.

If the previous answer doesn't work, ignore the problem and open your text files in Wordpad.

I would run a registry checker, then run SFC, then run CHKDSK. These should fix your problem.

Good luck
