I can't copy and paste anything!

This never happened to me before. I tried using Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V and clicking copy and paste, but it won't work. Please help.

Thanks.

Hi,

I have seen this behaviour if a Windows update is pending, or has already updated without a reboot. See if any updates are outstanding, if so, update and reboot the PC - I think your problem will be solved.

If not, then we can try a few other things.

Regards,

I had a problem recently like this. When I highlighted the words nothing happened. The colour that I had set to highlight had changed to white, therefore it looked like nothing was happening.
