Clipboard issue

  Femme 14:12 06 Sep 2009

When I went to internet explorer 8 Im getting a copy to clip board coming up when I copy paste a link
How do I change it .

Why do you think you need to change it? Clip board always comes into use, even though you don't normally see it, when you do copy and paste.

It says the web site may see other things on your clip board this is not safe I feel

Nothing out of the normal in that - I don't think you have anything to fear.

Any web-site can have the ability to 'see other things' - but that does not in reality mean a great deal.

I doubt you have anything to hide anyway!

As long as you have the normal everyday security measures in place, such as a good Anti-virus, AntiMalware, Firewall etc, there is not much else one can do.

I have nothing to hide right but it says the web site can view whats on your clip board
I wish to disable it as I copy paste links in my group page

An even easier way is to use Ccleaner if you have it, it clears the clipboard automatically when you run the program.
