Is there a FREE text editor for WINDOWS that can be set to save the current file after any changes or every second or faster?

just curious, why do you want it to save every SECOND? –  Mark Nov 9 '09 at 20:46

You can use Notepad++ with some customized scripts.

For example, this forum post gives a sample script.

I would suggest you try Notepad++. I would imagine a macro-esque or script-based implementation should do the trick.

Ctrl-s to save. That should speed up saving considerably. Saving every second is overkill though, and may slow down your performance.

If you are not working on code, Google Docs has a pretty frequent autosave.
