I have been getting the error message that "Notepad could not be found "when I have tried to open "Txt" files. Where has it gone?

Do a search on your PC for notebook.exe - if it is not there, you can reinstall it via the add/remove programs applet in the control panel - from there go to the windows components tab.

A better option is metapad- free and tiny but does much more than notepad. I simply renamed it notepad and replaced the original with it.
