Cut and paste does not work

As above, suddenly I cannot cut/copy-paste anymore in my windows XP host. I work on a VDI and I get the error message "Cannot empty the clipboard" on trying to cut/copy and paste.

"Probably some program opened the clipboard exclusively for update, then went to sleep while still locking out the clipboard, maybe waiting for some user-input.

If you're using remote sessions that share your local clipboard, this only adds more possibilities to which program is guilty."
