Wierd problem during editing HTML in TextPad

Expert 1GB
I had been using TextPad (http://www.textpad.com ) to edit HTML, PHP and JS files. Few days ago, it started giving some message while editing

'The file has been changed by some external editor, do you want to reload it?'

First I thought it might be some bug in TextPad, but then I used EmEditor(http://www.emeditor.com) one day. And same message was given by it while working on it.

Now it happens with all the files.

What's this? How my files are getting edited by some external editor?

A trojan? Run your security software.

Normally happens when you change something in one editor, then the other has to reload it.

I get that at work alot. It basically means you have file index.html open, and your working away, and then all of a sudden the software thinks the file index,html has changed when it shouldn't've.

Its a message telling you that the physical file has changed so it needs to be reloaded as a dead lock precaution.
