    Hello,

    I'm unable to drag and drop icons from desktop to an open window or open window to open window

    what happens is when i hold down the left mouse button to drag an icon from the desktop to an open window

    *** the cursor changes to a black circle with a diagonal line going through it (like the no smoking sign symbol)

    what is causing this to happen?

    thx rob


    ps: ONLY copy/cut and paste works now
