Hello All:
I'm using Windows 2003 on a 3 year old Compaq Presario 2500. I can seemingly copy, but when i try to paste, I get a full page screen shot of either the page i was copying from or the page I'm copying onto. This started off as an occasional instance but now happens 90% of the time.
I copy and paste through all the correct methods, so its not that kind of elementary circumstance.
Suggestions?
thanks!
jacob

Hi Jacobb,

Found this at another forum-hope this helps.

This has to do with some application that's having a lock over the Windows
Clipboard. David Candy's application should determine the Process that's
causing the problem.

Download GetOpenClipboardWindow.zip from here:
http://windowsxp.mvps.org/temp/GetOpenClipboardWindow.zip

Unzip and run the tool. Post back what it reports. For best results, run
this utility during the time you encounter the Copy<=>Paste problem.

Of late, my copy and paste functionality doesnt seem to work. I try to
reboot and then it works for a while only to stop working all of a sudden.

Does anyone know why ? Cant seem to remember installing anything that may
cause this.
