How to replace Notepad.exe on Windows XP

Windows XP has file protection so Notepad.exe will get restored if you just replace the file with renamed Sc1.exe. Follow these steps:

Download Sc1.exe from SourceForge and rename it to Notepad.exe
Save a copy of the original Notepad.exe somewhere.
Replace Notepad.exe in following three locations (order is significant):


*%WINDIR% is your Windows folder (i.e. C:\\Windows)

Press Cancel when a warning dialog appears.
That's it. Enjoy.
