    Hello Auskart, :)

    Since these are Windows system files, you might see if running a SFC /SCANNOW command may help.

    This got me to thinking [can be dangerous] so checked the latest Notebook I've updated to 10586.218. It has Wordpad but not Winword, probably because it doesn't have Office on it. What's interesting is the hold-over from Windows 3.11 called Write.exe in C:\Windows. Seems it calls Wordpad just as if it were a shortcut, only about 11KB.
