Looks like notepad is being started at boot time for some reason. There are a a variety of ways to check this, the best is Autoruns for Windows. Start it then see if you can find notepad in any of the startup areas. If so, uncheck it to disable.

Click on Help / Help for usage info.

You downloaded Autoruns.zip. Unzip it then run autoruns.exe.
