This is potential file corruption. Run Scandisk on your drive.

I think its a corrupting with ASCII Characters or so. Attached you can find my version of Notepad that is fully operational. Place this notepad.exe replacing your current one located in Windows/System32/. If it is corruption that should do the trick!
