http://clipboard-history.en.lo4d.com/virus-malware-test...
but after i restart my pc the problem occurs again , ya i can keep using it every time but well a permanent solution would be very appreciated , so what is it a virus or what , i tried scanning with avast but no use .
while i was trying to fix my self i used these 2 programs
Clipboard Master - Virus and Malware
Vista Support Forums...
and after they didnt fix my problem , i uninstalled them and afterwards even the clear clipboard above didnt fix my problem i have a serious problem with this clear clipboard any help please now i dont even have a temporary solution that clear clipboard doesn't even work.
what i have noticed is that when i copy file then paste it as a text it past the file location like i copy song at dekstop and paste at notepad C:\Users\Haddad\Desktop\Owl City - Fireflies (lyrics).mp3 dunno if that helps but im trying to provide as much info as possible cause i really need to fix this shit

Did you ever install a program that manages the clipboard? You could try uninstalling all of those and test.

You can also try creating a new user account in windows 7 and testing there. If the issue no longer occurs something is wrong with your profile.

Is there a restore point from before you intalled that clipboard program - if yes, make a system restore to that restore point.
