Searching file types js, php, shtml, html, xml etc. and they are kb size, small... but I don't think that is the issue. I just installed notepad on my other machine and it works without error. My gut tells me it's not notepad; I hope it's not my harddrive. '''''<---- tears of frustration. Maybe I've configured something wrong... the only thing I've added, some weeks ago, was xdebug.
