Windows 7: Windows 7 will not copy & paste but it'll cut & paste

Windows 7 will not copy & paste but it'll cut & paste

Hello,

I've been having this problem for a while and I can really use some help now. When I try to copy & paste any files, folders, pictures, etc.. it will not work. Copy & paste to different folder or different screen, etc. An error message box will pop up saying - windows explorer has stop working then it disappears and a 2nd message box will pop up saying - windows explorer is restarting. Then shuts down the folder that's open. However I can " Cut and Paste or Drag a file to a different location" It just won't copy and paste.

Files that I'm trying to copy and paste are not anything special. It's all words, excel, power point, pictures, even folders etc...

It just won't copy and paste but again I can cut and paste.

Any ideas?

Thank you so much.

Hello and welcome to Seven Forums.

Go to your Start menu and type CMD, you will see at the top of the window CMD.exe.
Right click on it and left click Run as Administrator.
In the window that will open type the following and hit enter.
sfc /scannow

Let the system run and it will find any problems and repair them.
Re-boot and do it all again for either 3 times or until no issues are found.

Hi MeonMine,

So I did the scannow and this is what it says after done scanning.

"Windows resource Protection did not find any integrity violations"

Any recommendation?

Thanks!

If you have MyWinLocker software installed it's been causing that problem recently. Obviously if it's not installed ignore this post.

Does it work after a re-boot, trying it when you know you are not over using the system hardware, CPU and RAM? Are you using any RAM optimizing software? Some people are reporting problems with "Advance System Care" from IOBIT, and one solution was un-checking the "Clean Clipboard" option.

You're lucky! A few users had trouble removing that software.
