    I noticed that my cut and paste functions were not working normally in excel. When I would press ctrl+x the ants would not surround the selection, and when I would press ctrl+v the data would paste, but the old data would not be cut. Additionally I was not able to use the ctrl+alt+ v (paste special) function, which I use a lot!

    After reading up on the issue I closed all of my google chrome windows and tried working in excel again. The cut and paste functions returned to normal, but the paste special option never came back. It is also grayed out on my toolbar menu.

    I'm running Microsoft excel 2007, and I'm using Windows Vista :eek: (I know, I need to upgrade!)...
