Windows 7: CTRL + C,X,V Unable to work in Windows.

16 Sep 2014   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit OS
CTRL + C,X,V Unable to work in Windows.

Hi All,

Been searching for answers but somehow, can't find any similar problem.

Here's the problem:

1) CTRL + C, CTRL + X is unable to work in My Computer.

Normally when we perform a CUT on files in My Computer, the icon will greyed out but this time, I couldn't get it greyed. Copy and Cutting shortcuts doesn't seems to work which leads to unable to PASTE. I've tried shortcuts and even using the mouse right click, both methods doesn't work in MY COMPUTER.

Tried doing cutting and pasting from browsers to Notepad (to and fro) no problem at all. Shortcuts and right click method is also done on programs like excel, word etc with no problem at all. Only COPYing/Cutting of files in MY COMPUTER is unable to execute.


FULL Virus Scan is in progress now while posting this thread.

2) I used to be able to do it like during this 3-4years when I bought the laptop until now.

From what I can recall, this problem seems to start when i was doing some Windows Update even up to yesterday. Not sure if the updates have bugs or whatsoever though.
