Windows 7: Copy & paste still not working after reformatting

Copy & paste still not working after reformatting

Ok so about a week ago (last Tuesday) I noticed my copy & paste not working. I thought it was a fluke, so I rebooted. It happened about 2-5 times daily until I reformatted last night.

It just started happening again. I have no idea what's causing it but my job requires me to constantly copy information from emails and transfer them into design programs so I really can't be forced to reboot every time my copy & paste goes down. I've already rebooted twice today.

Please let me know any suggestions that might fix my problem. I'm at my wit's end!

If I need to provide some kind of information then please let me know, thanks.

It is probably something other than the operating system causing this.

Please try these steps:

Thanks for the suggestion. I'm going to try this after work (still trying to get Dropbox synced up again) and I'll let you know if I discover what's causing this.
