Replacing MS Notepad after installation of WinXP SP2
- I use NoteTab light and I've just installed Windows XP Service Pack
2. Since doing so I notice that NoteTab will no longer execute in
place of MS Notepad.
When you select Help -> Replace MS Notepad, NoteTab renames
c:\windows\Notepad.exe and drops a small 19,456 byte executable in
it's place. During the WinXP SP2 installation this file is replaced
by a new Notepad.exe. After the installation of SP2 was complete I
started NoteTab and found the "Replace MS Notepad" option was no
longer greyed out. I selected this but when I checked the Windows
folder I found the new SP2 Notepad was there. I've even tried
manually replacing the SP2 Notepad with the Notetab 19,456 byte exe
but Windows detects this and immediately restores the SP2 Notepad. I
assume this is to do with the new Security Center.
Is there a work-around for this MS induced problem?
