I am unable to copy and paste within a Word doc or copy from Word and paste to other applications. I can copy from outside of Word into Word, and can copy and paste between other applications. This happened once before a few weeks ago, but I was able to fix it by saving my document under another name and it worked fine. This time that is not working. I would be so very grateful for any advice. I did have problems with a virus a couple of weeks ago but that has been cleared thanks to Combo Fix and Malwarebytes.

Have you tried uninstalling/reinstalling your version of Word...and then installing all applicable critical updates and SPs?

I've reinstalled Word which was initially successful, but today I'm back to square one. Tried reinstalling again today but this time it didn't fix the problem.
