Solutions to the Problem notepad popping up


Hey shipley1977, 

How long have you had this issue?
Any changes made to the computer prior to the issue occurred? 
Let’s put the computer in clean boot state and check. 
Perform a Clean Boot to check if there are some software conflicts on the system. 
To help troubleshoot error messages and other issues, you can start Windows 7 by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs.
This kind of startup is known as a "clean boot." A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

Follow the steps below:

1.
Log on to the computer by using an account that has administrator rights.
2.
Click Start, type msconfig.exe in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER to start the System Configuration Utility.
If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.

3.
On the General tab, click Selective Startup, and then click to clear the Load startup items check box.
(The Use Original Boot.ini check box is unavailable.)
4.
On the Services tab, click to select the Hide all Microsoft services check box, and then click Disable all.
5.
Click OK, and then click Restart.
6.
Check if you still have the issue.
Refer the link below for more details:

Reset the computer to start as usual.
After you have finished troubleshooting, follow these steps to reset the comuter to start as usual:

a.
Click Start , type msconfig.exe in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.

b.
If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.

c.
On the General tab, click the Normal Startup option, and then click OK.

d.
When you are prompted to restart the computer, click Restart.
Apart from the above mentioned steps, I suggest you try running a
malware scan and check what happens.  
http://www.microsoft.com/Security_Essentials  
Some malware/spyware/virus that is out on the Internet, will also change system settings, corrupt data, and log invalid registries that will also make annoying errors, as like the ones you are encountering.  You can try a virus scan.
Just keep in mind
that if your system does contains a virus, the active virus can try to keep the system from installing/using the virus scan correctly.
Online Virus scans (sometimes) will not have that problem.  
http://onecare.live.com  - OneCare is Microsoft's Virus Scan.  You can attempt using the OneCare Safety Scanner.
That is OneCare's online Scanner.
Somtimes it will not launch properly
if your system is not under a specific ordinance.   
Use the below link to perform  a online full service scan on the computer:
