The Office Clipboard provided with MS Office 2003 is seemingly interfering with Ctrl+C outside of Office programs. I can't clear the clipboard, as when I click "clear", it empties and then fills back with unknown items, so the copy/paste function no longer works. I renamed the template "normal.dot" and re-opened MS-Word and Outlook, closed them and still have the problem. I've run SpyDoctor and NoAdAware (both are current) and that doesn't help. I run a full Norton virus scan twice a week, and still the same problem. I'm open to suggestions, short of re-loading XP, which is up to date with SP-2 (auto update invoked). I currently use Netscape 8.1, with curent update loaded. Thanks for any and all help provided. John

Hi G8RGuy.
The Clipboard in office saves the last 24 copy commands from any other compatable program. When you reach number 25, number one is removed. It's a constant rotation and thus the 'repopulation". The only way I know of to stop it from doing that is open the Office Clipboard and click the "Clear All' button. Next, click the "Options" button at the bottom of the clipboard and deselect "Collect Without Showing Office Clipboard" by removing the checkmark. Close the Clipboard. It should only keep the last copy command now.
