Notepad is not a DOS application....soo err

Go to another windows 7 computer, go to C:\Windows\System32 and copy notepad onto the flash drive

Go back to the faulty machine and copy notepad from the flash drive to the other computer.

This is a cheap and nasty fix, unfortunately I have never seen this happen to a windows executable except in cases of file corruption.
If this does fix it, I would recommend performing a check-disk. And possibly scan for viruses as well, can't hurt :P
