Notepad shortcut stops View Source in IE working

  RogerDee 15:44 26 Sep 2004

View Source in Internet Explorer 6 suddenly refused to work, although there was no error
I tried all the fixes I could find, like checking the path to Notepad and clearing out temp files, but they made no difference.
Then I spotted a line somewhere that said if you have a shortcut to Notepad _called_ Notepad on the desktop, remove or rename it. To my surprise it worked -- I renamed it as [email protected] and everything was fine again.
If anyone knows the reason for this strange behaviour please enlighten me.
