Using Windows 8, I have a lot of trouble with simple copy/paste.

Half of the time, the copy paste doesn't work. You do the same copy/paste twice, once it works, once it doesn't. If it doesn't work, I close another program at random. Then it works again.

I use ctrl-c ctrl-v a lot, really a nightmare that this doesn't reliably work anymore.
I read lot's of similar cases on the internet, but missed a really good answer. Seems to be related to running out of resources. That would explain why this is so intermittent. And why it sometimes works if you close an unrelated program.

Had couple of instances again today.

For instance copy paste from explorer to outlook doesn't work. I close Word. Do exactly the same copy paste from explorer to outlook and everything works fine.
