"What I found:

This has to do with some application
that's having a lock over the Windows
Clipboard. David Candy's application
should determine the Process that's
causing the problem.

Download GetOpenClipboardWindow.zip
from here:
> http://windowsxp.mvpsdotorg/temp/GetOpenClipboardWindow.zip

Unzip and run the tool. Post back what
it reports. For best results, run
this utility during the time you
encounter the Copy<=>Paste problem.

So it might be some program is locking your Clipboard. Try to find out what's causing the problem and let us know."
