    lol.......

    do one thing...

    go to my comp> right click >> manage > System Tools > Application and look for ERROR message collected by OS when WordPad crashed... and instantly search for it in H&C Center by clicking the hyperlink in it... and also post it here...

    What I mean is u get some kind of error message or something when WordPad Crash...????

    also try to replace ur WordPad.exe file in

    %program files%\Windows NT directory from wordpad.exe located in

    %systemroot%\servicepackfiles\i386


    let us know if it fix or not..

    @batty...no errors whatsoever. Just kinda ....auto-closes immediately on opening a document.
    I can't find it there!!
    @ShekharPalash
    Thanks for the help, I've replaced the file...I still don't know if it'll crash again, ...I didn't see any errors in the log too.??
    The trouble is that it occurs very sporadically..... :?
