Just to add a bit to what Alec already told you, you can run NoteTab in any directory you like as long as it can find it's INI file and it's dedicated directories.
You can have it in 3 (or 100) different directories and run an instance from all 3 at the same time if you should find some reason for doing so.
The uninstall will only uninstall it from where you originally installed it.
One of the many great features of NoteTab is it's ability to replace/restore MS NotePad for you.
The option to do this is listed in the Help Menu.
If you attempted this and it did not seem to work for you, you might find the following DL helpful.
If you go to
you can DL a document entitled "ALL ABOUT REPLACING Notepad WITH NOTETAB AS DEFAULT EDITOR IN WINXX'S" which gives the full background on the subject as well as special considerations required for doing so in Win2K & XP.
I selected the menu option to have Notetab replace MS Notepad.
