It is in C:\Windows\system32 folder and is called notepad.exe

Why do you want to delete it anyway?

In XP notepad.exe is considered a critical Windows file and cannot be easily deleted. If you delete the file, or attempt to overwrite it with another, it will be quickly restored by Windows File Protection. Also, notepad.exe is found in both the windows folder and windows\system32, both being protected.

It is possible to delete the file but you must use the proper method. But why do you wish to do this?
