Q: What if I still want to run "original notepad.exe"?



Answer:
The answer is straightforward, just key-in "notepad.exe", with the "dot-exe" extention filename, since it is located at system32 folder, it was also be indexed anytime.

What we replaced here is shortcut(also indexed by windows),
NOT the exe file itself.
