Clear out your temporary files. It should work then.

i had the same problem all you have to do is make sure that notepad is your default html editor. Right click internet explorer and select properites, under the programs tab make sure the html editor is set to notepad. It should work fine after this.

If you have the XP cd then try the System File Checker

Put your windows CD into the CD ROM and hold the shift key (the one with arrow pointing up, just above the Ctrl key on the left of your keyboard). Holding shift for a few seconds will stop the Windows CD from auto running, but the drive will still spin up to read the disk then spin back down again. Once it has spun down you can release the shift key.

Now click Start/All Programs/Accessories and choose Command Prompt. Type in

sfc /scannow

and hit enter. This will check and replace any damaged system files.

If this doesnt work then click here and have a look.
