Hi, all...I got a silly problem with my Windows98 SE NotePad.

When I double-click any regular text file, I get the error message:

Cannot find file 'C:\Whatever the path is' (or one of its components). Make sure the path and filename are correct and that all required libraries are available.

Then, it opens the text file, but everytime when I try to open a text file this message appears and it started the get to my nerves....

I would appreciate if anybody could help me with this...

Thank you,
-Serkan

If that doesn't work you can go to winfile.exe and select a txt file and then go to File Associate and then hit browse to select the application that you want to be the default to open the program.
