What happens when you try and paste? Are you sure the copy is going to the clipboard? Can you paste into Wordpad or Paint?

When I copy from, say, an emal or website then paste to Word I get a small black blob that when clicked has a picture frame around it. When I grab a corner of the frame and drag to expand the frame it stays a black blob; it just gets bigger. This is the same for Excel.

Yes, I can copy to Notepad and Paint so yes, the copy is going to the clipboard. I can also copy to this reply. It appears to apply only to MS Office programs.

Had same problem here. Figured out that Word has to be open BEFORE you do your copy operation in whichever application. Word in a sense "catches" the copy when it is made, and it can only do this if it's already open.
