Data Execution Prevention message opening Notepad

When I or an application attempt to open Notepad, Notepad opens but I then get a "Data Execution Prevention" window. I have cleaned my PC of any virus and malware. How can I get my Notepad to function again?

I would just disable DEP (if you are running XP) by right clicking on My Computer -> Properties -> Advanced tab -> Click in the first Settings button -> Click on the Data Execution Prevention tab and turn it off.
