Windows 7: Can't clear "ctrl V" clipboard

Can't clear "ctrl V" clipboard

Windows 7 Professional 64bit

Here's a good one for you! If I copy and paste from the drop down menu, no problem. If I use "ctrl c & ctrl v" it will only paste a comment from a couple weeks ago, and I'm stumped, no idea how to clear it? - Help Appreciated, IM

Try clearing the clipboard with CCleaner.

CCleaner - Optimization and Cleaning - Free Download

Note, I'm not endorsing the registry cleaner at all. Stay away from it.

Thank y'all for your help. Gotta learn to laugh at ones-self as we get older. I Worked this issue for a couple hours and couldn't solve it. Then, just now, I discovered that that I had created a macro using "ctrl V" as the key activator when setting up my Motorola Droid 2 in the middle of the night Yikes
