Cut, Copy and Paste Problem Gets Screen Shot or Screen Capture Ins

Post by UHV6emxlZC » Sun, 28 Oct 2007 07:16:00


I have two computers with this problem. I am running Windows XP Pro with
Office XP Pro (Office 2002), Pentium 4 chip or higher, 1 gig(+) RAM. I have
a Microsoft Trackball Explorer on one computer, and a Microsoft wireless
optical mouse 5000.

The problem with screen shots taking the place of my cut or copy and paste
just started occurring.

Most of the times that I try to copy and paste something I get a screen
capture instead of the text that I want to either cut or copy and paste. I
have tried all methods of copying and pasting including:

Clipboard: always starts with screen capture
Shortcuts: Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V
Menu: Edit-Copy and Edit-Paste
Mouse right click: copy and paste

Almost everytime I get a screen capture instead of what I want to copy.
Additionally, when I open the Windows XP clipbook viewer it shows a screen
shot instead of the "text."

This problem is independent of the Office applications and other programs
too. Many times the computer is capturing screens even when I am not trying
to copy something. When I open an Office program and the clipboard viewer I
see it fill up with screen shots. When I clear the clipboard it automatically
fills up again.

I believe this to be a problem associated with Windows XP as the problem
happens in notepad and IE.

I have scanned the computer with AdAware, Spybot, and Symantec Antivirus and
the problem persists.

Does anybody have the same problem or a solution other than a clean
re-install?

Check for keys on the kb that may be sticking and/or check the button settings in
Control Panel > Mouse.

A few things to try:

- Right-click is slow or weird behavior caused by context menu handlers:

That could work if those sections of the context menu are damaged, I
guess. It shouldn't hurt anything to read these articles and consider
the fixes.

- I _believe_ Copy Paste are connected to Ole components, which are tied
to IE. It might help to repair Internet Explorer to get these working
right again:

- Perhaps just re-registering some of these .dll's will fix it.

Click Start button, Run command and type in the text box:

Regsvr32 /i ole32.dll and click [OK] or Hit [Enter] on your keyboard.

Regsvr32 /i shell32.dll and click [OK] or Hit [Enter] on your keyboard.

Regsvr32 mshtml.dll and click [OK] or Hit [Enter] on your keyboard.

- Look for malware on the machine.
