so to fix the ".txt" files cant be opend w/ NOTEPAD its b/c the notepad.exe file is f*cked. U have to go into C:/WINDOWS and then press "N" twice and it will jump u down the entire folder to Notpad. From there u have to rewrite notepad as any name and then open that up and then goto FILE, OPEN and then scroll for your text files. IF U HAVE WIN XP then u can put the Notepad.exe as a Program on the Start menu or on the "BUTTONS" menu on your taskbar. IT should work from here.

Find the Notepad.exe file in your C:\Windows folder, and copy (NOT move) it to the C:\Windows\System32 folder. Allow it to overwrite the one in there (if there still is one).
That should fix that.
Reason: The copy in System32 has been replaced/corrupted , probably by a CWS parasite variant, but the one in Windows is protected by Windows File Protection, and is therefore usually intact.
BTW, you need to re-associate txt files with Notepoad.exe, of course....
