Unable to copy and paste

  Leejg 18:13 20 May 2004

Recently I'm unable to copy and paste items from web pages and e-mails but can in my own documents.

Any ideas

Does it apply to edit/copy, edit/paste or ctrl-c, ctrl-v or both?

Edit copy and paste are greyed out. I can't left click and drag to highlight text firstly so that probably explains the greying out. I also can't move the cursor in the text either.

There are a few problems with cut and paste of HTML in IE and OE under XP. Google on "copy and paste problem". If you are not up to date with IE 6 and can, then either re-instal IE6 / OE6 from a recent cover disk and then get the latest fixes from M$. A trawl round the M$ knowledge base would help too.

If you have installed any new stuff recently, did it start then?

Got to go, I can hear a drink calling......

Just re-started Pc and everthing seems ok no idea why though.

Thanks Gemma anyway

A nice little organic white from the Loire....

One of the symptoms is that it comes and goes across re-boots. Let's hope it's gone for good.
