EDIT: Tried full reinstall of both 32 and 64 bit versions, it did not fix the problem at all.
EDIT 2: Well after not wanting to edit the file without the help of someone who knows what they are doing, I searched the web and edited the java.policy file with a line that re-enables copy-pasting again within Java. And it seems to have worked.
Does anyone know why copy-paste was disabled in Java 7 Update 5?
