Windows 7: A very weird copy and paste issue

A very weird copy and paste issue

I have a very strange copy and paste issue.
If I select text, press CTRL+C and then go into word (and some other text editors) and press CTRL+V it just pastes a black oval. If I press CTRL+C twice then CRTL+V then it pastes the text. If I press CTRL+V three times its an oval again.

Sounds like Ctrl+C is being intercepted by some program and not being passed to Windows unless it's pressed twice in a row.

Try it ins Safe Mode, see if it still happens.

Copy and Paste Issue
I love Windows 7, and I really like the confirmation prompt that W7 showed me when copying files from one folder to another. HOWEVER, somehow, someway, W7 now copies the files to the destination folder, no prompt, and creates copies of the files instead. GRRRRRR..........! any ideas?
