Try this , Control Panel > Internet Options > Security. Scroll down to 'Drag and Drop or Copy and Paste Files' and check this option is enabled.

Boy, I would sure miss 'copy and paste'!

I thought I would check out what Les mentioned above as I have never
noticed that before (anything about having an option to copy and paste)
but all I have in control panel is something called Security Center and it
only mentions Firewalls, Virus Protections and Updates.
(Les, could it be under some other 'icon'?)

mrcasss....have you tried highlighting what you want to copy and instead of
right clicking COPY with your mouse, go up to Edit and click on COPY there?
See if that works.

Sincerely, Janie :tazz:

Thanks for all the replys

I re-booted a few times, did a windows update and so far seems ok

Hope thats it as sometimes you really need copy and paste to work

Cheers
