Notepad.exe Problem!

  [DELETED] 14:01 10 Oct 2003

When i go to click on notepad.exe or any notepad files i receive an error message:

"the notepad.exe file is linked to missing export COMDLG32.DLL:PrintDlgExW"

I then click OK and another error message appears:

"C:\Windows\Desktop\Shortcut to notepad.exe - a device attached to the system is not functioning"

Any help or ideas?????

Try System File Checker (Start>Run> type in "sfc" without the quotes and click OK).

Start SFC and it will indicate if the file is missing or corrupt and provide the opportunity to reinstall it (along with any other problem files you may have!)

You will probably need your Win98 CD-ROM.
