    Hello, A friend says he has a corrupt Notepad .exe in his xp home edition, where can he go to reinstall it?

    you might be able to take a copy of a working notepad.exe and put it back into his windos\system32 folder and see if that helps.
    You could also try to use system restore to a point before it went bad (unless it's disabled).

    He wants to know where he can get a good copy of the .exe? Also he had turned off system restore( not good to do that) which he says he will never do again!

    He could try deleting windows\system32\notepad.exe and let Windows File Protection do its thing.
