Sticky notes irritation

Ok, when ever I have sticky notes open and shut windows down it erases the exe file that runs the program. So I have to do the sfc /scannow to get it back. Has anyone else noticed this?

Hi and welcome

If you close sticky before shutting down windows what happens? does it happen when you boot in safe mode (F8)?

I have what I guess is a similar issue. It's now happened twice that when I shutdown my computer with the Sticky Notes application still open, the boot sector somehow gets corrupted. At least, Windows will not load, and using the repair disk Bootrec.exe/FixBoot fixes the problem.

No sticky notes?
Hi, I just developed a need for the sticky note function, but it's nowhere to be found. I searched for sticky, and sticky notes, in the Start menu - nothing. It's not listed on the Windows components list either. I must be the only one without sticky notes!

I hate the fact that the font of sticky notes cant be changed and that they dont have tickets. What alternative do you recommend me? Thanks in advance.

Sticky Notes
Recently updated from Vista to 7 on 2 machines (both Lenovo tablet PC's). I had several pre-existing sticky notes and use the program often. When I try to launch sticky notes in 7, I get a "corrupt metadata" error message. Same thing on both machines. Need suggestions for a fix. Thanks.
