Hi Guys,

I haven't really been able to find a direct answer to this but what I'm trying now is to recreate the users profile, a tedious effort in itself. Adding programs back onto the machine so fingers crossed the copy and paste issue is rectified. If not I'm just going to format the machine and start again.

Looks like the creation of a new profile did the trick.

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
Stumbled on an Answer to my Windows 7 Cut-n'-Paste problem

I too had the CNTL<C> CNTL<V> issue ... (and the touchpad's cut n'paste functionality). I no longer was able to highlight a phrase on an eBay listing, and then paste it into eBay's search box.

From my initial DELL OS restore of my hardrive back to the initial delivered state, all was working fine ... somewhere along the line the functionality changed, so I suspected it was something I'd done.

I read numerous posts pointing at the clipboard and various other software culprits ...

However, in my case, it was the Synaptics pointing device on my DELL XPS L-702x laptop.

Under the tab:
Mouse Properties/Buttons - is a feature called "Clicklock"

If I leave the box "UNCHECKED" (which must be the default from the system restore) ... then I have normal, expected behavior of Cut-n'-Paste functionality ...

When I 'Check' the "Turn on ClickLock" box ... the problems come back ...

Hope this helps someone ...
