    Don't worry, its a cause of minor change of your PC settings.

    Lets get it solved

    If you ever find that you are unable to copy and paste in the Windows Explorer,

    Open the Control Panel.

    Select the Internet Options applet

    Click on the Security tab.

    Then click on Custom Setting,

    Find the option "Drag and copy or paste"

    Ensure that it is enabled.

    If not enabled, enable it and your problem is solved.

    If you are unable to copy and paste reboot (shut down and restart) your computer.

    This will clear the memory and allow you to use the clipboard again.

    Try deleting your Temporary Files (and Temporary Internet Files while
    you're at it).

    Start>Run>cleanmgr [enter]

    OR.


    Take the following steps to check this setting on any computer (using Internet Explorer 6):

    1. Click on your Windows Start button, select Control Panel (or Start, Settings, Control Panel).

    2. Double click on the Internet Options icon.

    3. Select the Security Tab.

    4. In the Security Settings for your Internet zone area (the default), check to see if the settings are set to Default (Medium). If the settings are set to High or Custom, take the following steps:

    1. Click the Custom Level button.

    2. Scroll down the list to the Scripting section near the bottom.

    3. Locate the "Allow paste operations via script" option and check this setting. If this is set to Disable or Prompt, it will prevent our software from interacting with the Windows Clipboard.

    4. Set to Enable if needed and click OK

    5. Select the other Zones (Local Intranet and Trusted Sites) and repeat the process to ensure that this option is not interfering with our software. You should not change the settings for Restricted Sites.

    6. Once the settings have been corrected, click Apply and OK.

    7. Restart the computer and then check to see if the problem has been resolved.

    I guess one of the links of RichFrogg , refers to Virtual PC case, which is not your case I think.


    You could try this:

    1. Create a new user account.


    2. Log off from your account and Log on into the new user account.


    3. Try the copy-paste thing in the new user account.


    4. If this case works, transfer all your files,documents,pictures,music etc to the new user account and start using this new user account as your default one.


    5. After all transfers are complete, delete your old account.


    6. Let us know if it did any good.
