    NotePad not working


    Recently my Windows NotePad program stopped working properly. When I type something out on it or copy and paste something onto it and click "Save" it just says 'not responding' then it closes down.

    So I tried installing a similar program NotePad2 and it does exactly the same thing. So it seems like it is Winddows 8.1 that is the problem.

    Can anybody please assist me with this?

    Thank you
