    Hi! I use a lot of "copy and paste" on my computer. I recently began having a problem. I will go to copy something, and when I click on paste, this is what I get:


    I can go back to the item I am copying, and copy again, and it will paste it right the second time.

    This happens every time I try to copy and paste, and I get the same "pasted" item above. I click copy again, and it will paste what I wanted it to, but it always takes 2 tries.

    Thank you in advance.

    You sound like you have scum ware - Get/update and run AdAware/SpyBot S&D/SPywareBlaster

    If that doesn't fix you get HiJack this and post the log.
