Lame question

Postby Southern_land » Thu Apr 28, 2005 6:44 am

I'm driving an old Win 98SE machine and somehow I can no longer open notepad, a double click just tries to load up the internet connection. There's no "open with" in 98 so can anyone tell me how to retreive this?

cool Thanks

Shane! You are not the only one hanging on to Win98.I for myself imagine that much of the problems lately on CC comes with using Win XP....

Urban Legend....Windows XP has absolutely zero negative effects on CC...I have been running XP Home (NTFS installation) for 3+ years, and have played CC2-CC5 with zero issues, and have never had to turn on compatibility mode. Of course schrecken is talking about Windows 2000, different animal
