Cannot Copy and Paste
OK Here is my situation...
Hard drive crashed and had to get back up and running ASAP so I took computer to Best Buy for Geek Squad to repair same. I did not have System Disks but they managed to reinstall my OS (Windows 7 64 bit) along with all of my drivers - the computer is a Dell Inspiron.
Everything is running good except one of the programs I use on a normal basis. It is an HTML Editor called Coffee Cup and I noticed I had lost the ability to copy and paste in it (which is vital)
The copy function appears to be working but it will not paste (nothing happens) At first it seemed to only affect this program but then I noticed that it also was happening on another program when I was re-installing it yesterday and I tried to copy and paste my registration license key and nothing would happen.
The weird thing is I can copy and paste fine in notepad and word - thats how I confirmed the copy function is working because when it would not paste in the Coffee Cup Program I opened up word and did a paste and it worked.
Tried some trouble shotting.... contacted Coffee Cup Programmers (They are stumped) - did a re-install of the coffee cup program (didnt work). Then I tried to trouble shoot and see what was causing the problem. I noticed that whenever I opened my Firefox browser window the problem happened. If I closed Firefox then it would begin pasting again. I uninstalled firefox and tried again but this time while having Internet Explorer open (V10) and it happened again.
So the copy and paste seems to stop working whenever I open a browser window.
Anyone have any idea what could be going on?

Read that thread over and did not seem to be the same problem as me.... that person looked like they didnt know how to copy and paste. My problem is the copy and paste function will not work at least if I have a Internet Browser window open.
Like I said before it doesnt seem to just be this one program. Happened yesterday with another program when i tried to copy and paste my license key to register the software. Click past and nothing happens at all.
