Understanding Computers/Copying


I'm copying a document from the internet into word. Everything was going great until a couple of hours ago.  Each time I try to copy a new paragraph, the paragraph that I previously copied appears.  I've tried deleting, cutting, shutting down and starting over.  Nothing works, the same paragraph appears.

I'm using ctrl c and ctrl v. I have a Dell Windows Vista.

Thank you

Hello Sandy:
Thanks for asking this question.  Please try one of these:
1. The clipboard may be corrupted/disabled. When you copy something, it copys it to the Clipboard so that you can paste it later. Please check to see that the Clipboard service is enabled. You can go to START, RUN, and Type Services.msc. And look for clipboard and make sure its automatic/enabled/started.
2. Search for program Silverlight in START. Then click the "Permissions" tab and scroll down to the entry for Regex Hero and remove it.

I hope one of these works fine for you.
