Windows XP Pro Corporate with SP3 - wordpad problem

When I try to open wordpad by any means I get a dialogue box saying:
“Failed to create empty document”
This is a new install of this O/S and the target file is present. Any ideas please, - Thanks.

    I managed to fix this with a prog called "XPLite" free trial, it let me uninstall wordpad (and most other windows packaged sortware) then reinstall it - problem solved!

Just delete the wordpad.exe in "C:\Program Files\Windows NT\Accessories" and then rename the wordpad.backup to wordpad.exe

Hope this help!!

PS. would be a good job to copy wordpad.backup, just in case something goes wrong tomorrow or another day ;-)

Delete the Wordpad shortcut you are using, even if it is in the Start menu. Then we will create a new one that should work.
OK - Ready to create the new one? Good.

- Open My Computer or Windows Explorer (make it a size that leaves some desktop showing)

- Navigate to:
"C:\Program Files\Windows NT\Accessories"

- Find "wordpad.exe"

- RIGHT CLICK on that file and HOLD the button down on.

- While holding the RIGHT mouse button down, DRAG the file to the desktop - then release it.

- In the little menu that shows up, select "Create Shortcuts Here"

The new shortcut should start Wordpad OK.

Windows\system32\config\system file is missing or corrupt


Step 1:
SP3 is the third and final service pack released for Microsoft Windows XP, and it eliminates many of the security holes that previously affected XP. While Microsoft recommends that users download SP3 using Windows Update, some users are unable to do so. However, it's easy to create a Windows XP SP3 installation CD; it requires only that you download the pack from the website and burn it to a CD-R/DVD-R using an ISO burner program.
Download the SP3 installation ISO by visiting the first link listed in the "Resources" section of this article. Save it to your Desktop. Download ImgBurn and save it to your Desktop. Double-click the installation executable for ImgBurn and click "Next." Follow the remaining onscreen prompts and click "Finish" to complete installation of ImgBurn. Insert a blank CD-R/DVD-R into your DVD drive. Open ImgBurn by going to "Start," "Programs" and "ImgBurn." Click "File," then "Browse for a source file." Navigate to your Desktop and select the SP3 ISO file. Click "Open." Click the blue "ISO to CD" button located on the bottom left of ImgBurn. The program will begin creating the Windows XP SP3 installation CD. This process may take anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes to complete depending on the speed at which the CD-R/DVD-R is being burned. Click "OK" once the CD-R/DVD-R has finished burning. You've successfully created a Windows XP SP3 installation CD.

The process "winlogon.exe" runs in the background.
Winlogon is a part of the Windows Login subsystem, and is necessary for user authorization and Windows activation checks. http://www.neuber.com/taskmanager/proces...

Note: The winlogon.exe file is located in the folder C:\Windows\System32. In other cases, winlogon.exe is a virus, spyware, trojan or worm! Check this with Security Task Manager."
Microsoft designed Windows so many small applications perform their tasks without a user knowing about it.
Normally, this will run smoothly and without flaw, but every once in a while, an issue can come up.
Winlogon.exe is an application that runs on start-up, and its primary function is to monitor the use of other applications.
Winlogon.exe typically only runs for about a minute or two when Windows first boots up, so if for some reason it is still running five or 10 minutes later, it could be infected.
Spyware and other malware would infect this application because it can manipulate other programs in Windows, causing problems.
If this is the case, the file might need to be removed.
if you want to remove this from
Open "My Computer" and select the "C:" drive.
Double click the "Windows" folder, then select "System 32." Navigate through the System 32 folder until you find "Winlogon.exe."
Click the "Winlogon.exe" file and hit "Delete."
Select "Yes" when asked if you're sure you want to remove the program.
