Re: Copy Paste not Working

Clipboard service is only used during remote desktop it has nothing to do with copy and pasting on a local Machine.

Other than that try scanning for viruses and malware you could be infected.

Download and install Malwarebytes Malwarebytes

Install it update it then run a full scan.

Re: Copy Paste not Working

possibly a corrupt windows installation or a bad windows update.

Re: Copy Paste not Working

I agree with shawnpb, it's possible that you could have a virus. You could do a system restore and see if it works again, or try a Windows Update to see if your copy/paste function works following that. I have had this problem on XP before, but it was remedied by simply restarting. Maybe one of these could be of some use.

Re: Copy Paste not Working

I Agree with wcogent, istead of faffing around trying to get it done, just reinstalll Windows from the orginal disc you have(Not the recovery discs), but if you do not have a Windows 7 disc you may have to invest around £70($100-$130) to reinstall Windows.

Good Luck.

I agree here all though I believe reinstalling Windows is the last resort I think reinstalling Windows is the best bet.

I think like the others said your Windows installation is corrupted.
