Wordpad: problem opening

By jmaute1 ·
When I try to open Wordpad, I get a Compression Agent window that says that Compression Agent only runs on DriveSpace 3 compressed drives. It then asks if I want to run DriveSpace3 to compress my drive or to upgrade it to DriveSpace3 format. I always say no, the window closes and wordpad also closes. Whats up? This is so annoying.

Wordpad: problem opening

by earnest In reply to Wordpad: problem opening

It almost sounds like wordpad's name was changed or drvspace was changed to wordpad.Wordpad is found in program files\accessories and it has 200kbytes. It also maybe wordpad.exe or one of its componemts has become crosslinked to drvspace. Try running scandisk with thorough testing enabled. Run it in safe mode so it won't restart. Run a good virus scan with updated definition files. Sometimes exe files get targeted. If scandisk, virus scan don't do the trick then rename wordpad.exe somethin elseand extract it again from your cab files or windows cd. Do extract /? from your cab directory to get syntax. This should fix you up. Good hunting.
