why does cut and paste pastes sometimes paste the print screen

I'll explain the problem. When i am in Microsoft Word and lets say, i want to
cut and paste from one place to another, it quite often pastes as if i had
pressed the print screen. So, instread of the text i wanted to see, i see a
picture of the screen. There does seem to be a pattern. If i copy/cut the
text and then move to the place i want to paste it, if i then move the cursor
down, say two lines to fit the copied text in, that is when it happens. If i
prepair it before hand it does not happen.

This started on my old Acer computer. I've replaced it at the weekend with a
new sony laptop. I was devistated to discover that as i have brought my old
files over, i have also brought the old problem with it.

things i have checked.
The print screen button is not stuck on.
I have NAV professional which is kept upto date
I have Microsoft and ad-aware antispyware

Oddities:
on the old computer, the cut and paste problem would occure in applications
such as IE, for instance, cutting a web address and pasting. I do not think
that is happening with my new computer.

any suggests folks?
