Hello,
I seem to be having problems copy and pasting. The computer just freezes, and does nothing. I'm using Windows XP Home SP3.
Can anyone help please.

Is Your Clipboard Service Disabled In Services Or No?? Which Can Cause that To Happen!!

Just Go To run and type services.msc in the run command and it will open up your services control panel have a look to see if clip book or board is disabled and just change it to automatic and reboot your computer to see if it works or no

When you say the computer "freezes", what does that mean? If it just means nothing happens...pastes...then it may be that you only need to delete the contents of the clipboard.

For a fast and smooth running computer system, one should keep their memory resources free from clutter. One of the ways to quickly clutter and fill up your memory resources is to do a lot of copying, cutting and pasting of text files, pictures and objects between applications. When you perform a lot of these actions, you wind up filling up the Windows Clipboard and your system starts to slow down. Therefore, this technical brief will show you how to Clear the Contents of the Windows Clipboard to help you free up memory resources. Note: For Windows XP, The Clipboard Viewer Has Been Renamed To Clipbook Viewer.

For Windows XP

1. Begin by first clicking on the Start Button.
2. Then click on Run Icon, which will open up the Run Menu for you.
3. Locate the white area of the screen next to the word Open: in the Run Menu.
4. Now type in the abbreviated word Clipbrd and click on the OK button to launch the Program.
5. Notice how the Clipboard contains a record of your recent copy and paste inputs.
6. To empty your Clipboard, click on the word Edit located within your top tool bar area.
7. Then click on the word Delete from the pull down menu that appears.
8. Windows will ask you if you want to Clear the contents of the Clipboard.
9. Click on the Yes button to allow Windows to clear the Clipboard.
10. Notice how your former imputed information is now cleared from the Clipboard.
11. Then close the Clipbook Viewer Window to return to your Windows session.

mommabear, i can copy and paste in outlook, but i can't do it in Internet explorer. As soon as i highlight something and right click, the computer freezes for a minute or two and you can't do anything. When it un-freezes itself you're back to square one, having to highlight and right click again.

btw. tried your deleting process, but i haven't got anything in there to delete, cos i can't copy and paste anything!!!!
Anyway thanks for your help :thumbsup:
