Notepad++ freezes Windows 7 Ultimate when opening php or js files

    Everytime I try to open a PHP or JS file in notepad++ 6.2.2, it freezes my Windows 7. I cannot navigate anything. If I perform a log off user, it kills Notepad++ and I can start using Windows again.

    I have uninstalled and reinstalled Notepad++ 6.2.2 several times. This is very frustrating to me as I use Notepad++ 6.2.2 on my laptop (HP Pavilion Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit) and it does not freeze. My desktop PC, which freezes, is an Asus 64 bit with 12 gb RAM.

    I have had to uninstall Notepad++ for the moment.

    Please advise on what I can do to correct this. I cannot click on anything or check anything with Notepad++ freezes my computer.

    Could you remove all the plugins then try again?
