Copy paste issue...

Problem:
I cannot copy/paste any folder/file in local disk C.

What I CAN do:
I can copy paste (using the keyboard or right click option) from an external device (iphone) to local disk C
I can copy paste words/writing.

What I have tried to fix the problem:
the cmd thingy where you type in some code and it tells you if that fixed it or theres something wrong?. (its what most ppl suggested i try)

I think i may have deleted a registry file on accident.... i tried running the windows disk and selecting the "upgrade" option to fix registry issues but it said I cannot upgrade my sys...? how do you fix registry issues with the original cd? is this the only way?

Plus you might even try these in safe mode and in the chkdsk there are further options in Option 2

I believe the "cmd thingy" you referenced is "sfc /scannow". Since that didn't work and you think the registry may have been changed or damaged, I suggest trying a system restore prior to the time the registry was changed/modified. Visit the following link for instructions;

to the restore but I think George the OP is maybe referring to a registry fix and that is a place I am not going into as unless one knows the listings to put in it is all too easy to gte it wrong.
Personally the very firs thing I do after an install of the OS is to do a full registry back up and save at least two copies - overkill maybe but safe

A very weird copy and paste issue
I have a very strange copy and paste issue. If I select text, press CTRL+C and then go into word (and some other text editors) and press CTRL+V it just pastes a black oval. If I press CTRL+C twice then CRTL+V then it pastes the text. If I press CTRL+V three times its an oval again.

Copy and Paste Issue
I love Windows 7, and I really like the confirmation prompt that W7 showed me when copying files from one folder to another. HOWEVER, somehow, someway, W7 now copies the files to the destination folder, no prompt, and creates copies of the files instead. GRRRRRR..........! any ideas?
