Thanks for the quick response, mitchell65. I know, nobody ever thinks it's their fault. If the problem were frequent and occurred under reproducible conditions, I think you're right, uninstalling...

I've heard back from ClipCache tech support, and they say that there isn't anything that that program could do to damage the clipboard's functionality like this. Very frustrating. I'll just have to...

My most recent Windows update was June 11, but that was 11 days before the first instance of this. Yet it could be that that introduced something that I've managed to trigger just twice since then.

I appreciate the advice, but from my perspective, the problem has been so recent, so unreproducible, and so uncommon that uninstalling a program I use a dozen times an hour feels like overkill. But...

Twice in recent weeks the Windows clipboard has stopped working. I can't copy anything to it or paste anything from it; I have to reboot the computer to get it to work again. I have Windows 7 Pro...
