Don't want to keep the lousy Notepad as your default viewer for the HTML
source in Internet Explorer? You can change it by editing the registry.

Go to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\
View Source Editor\Editor Name

The default key there should say "Notepad.exe". If it doesn't, fix it. Or
change it to any editor of your choice. I have mine set to NoteTab Pro, an
excellent text editor.

Disclaimer: Editing the registry without proper knowledge can screw your
system. Back it up etc. etc.
