Default how-to fix IE win2k (and XP?) fails to 'view source'

I had this really weird problem with IE5.5 (is also a problem with IE6 I think) on win2k (probably same problem on XP?)..

pressing 'view source' in explorer did not do anything,. it was working at some point but then stopped working,. it turns out if you have a shortcut to notepad.exe on the desktop called 'Notepad' then view source doesn't work,. it's the same on all my win2k boxes (a shortcut to notepad is one of the things I always do).

Renaming or removing the shortcut sorts it,. would you believe!

anyway - in the process of finding that out - I found something much better - how to set up explorer to use Vim (editor of the dammed) for view src function - see http://www.vim.org/tips/tip.php?tip_id=118
