Copy/Paste/Clipboard Prob

I am having problem with Clipboard that is not holding the Copy? I am running Windows XP with Office 2002 with IE7. When I choose or copy from a website and go to a place I want to past into and when I right click and paste or edit the thing I copied is not there, actually the paste option is not visible? It is not happening everytime but it seems to happen if I am in Internet Explorer and copy something and then go to a word document or Outlook Express email to paste. I then go back and select the copy paste and it works. Does anyone know what is the problem here? Thanks

Is it happening in Windows Explorer or only with Internet Explorer? It has to do something with some programs that is having a lock over the Windows Clipboard. You can download an application called GetOpenClipboardWindow.zip by searching it on google to solve this issue.

I had this issue some weeks before. I noticed that if you have Word as part of the Works Suite, when you open Word it clears the clipboard. The fix was to uninstall a feature of the Works Suite. You can find the same in Add or Remove program.
