Windows 7: Copying and pasting - Red squares

26 Jan 2013   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit
Copying and pasting - Red squares

When I copy and paste - for this instance - from this forum - which I do for future reference - I have noted that I get red squares and a messages that with ActiveX controls some content may be lost.

Is this usual for some documents that you transfer into Windows 7?

Attached is a shot in Word of what I mean
