Lost Copy/Cut and Paste Function

I have discovered that I have lost my Copy/Cut and Paste function. This is copying/cutting from anywhere (Word, the internet, iTunes or any other text content) to anywhere. I don't know how it hapened but would grateful for some easy to follow instructions on getting it back please? I have Windows 7 and it has always worked up 'til about a week ago. I have restored the PC from an earlier checkpoint without success.

Proving difficult this one.

Next thing to try to do is to clear the clipboard....

Have a look at this article that explains how to create a desktop icon for clearing the clipboard. You only need to go as far as "clear the clipboard".

Just wondering if you have tried the function when using a different browser?
