denis93c, are you left clicking your mouse and draging it accross the text to highlite it first?

Then right click and choose copy from the menu. J.

OK let's start by seeing if you are successfully copying. After copying, Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, Clipboard Viewer.

Do you see the text that you copied?

yes its coping ok that way

And can you paste OK into Word or Wordpad or Notepad?

Are you saying you cannot copy and paste web address and text into Windows messenger?

If yes, reinstall messenger.

If no, repair Internet Explorer > (Win 98) Control panel > Add/Remoce programs > Find internet Explorer > Clcik Add/Remove then choose the reapir option. You will have to restart.

Windows XP > pop your Windows XP disc in the CD Drive...

Then type into the run command on the start menu...

SFC /Scannow

Click "ok"...

Let it do what it does...

Hopefully it'll be sorted.

You could aslo use a restore point, applys to windows ME as well.

I'm done.
