I have been running XP for a little over a year on my "new" system, and recently have noticed an irritating change in the clipboard function, that I can't find my way around.

Previously, I copy and paste recipes and other information directly from email messages (I use Outlook as my mail manager) in to Word documents for storing in my files. I highlight the portion I want to transfer, then right click my mouse and select copy, open a new Word document (assuming I don't have one already open), then right click again and select paste. This has always been simple and effective, until recently, when I am not able to paste unless the Word document in open before I attempt the transfer!!!?

I have tested this in various ways...but the clipboard is not functioning unless Word is open and a document is waiting!? What did I do to my system? How can it be restored to the full function?

I found quite a few articles in the MS knowledge base that could be related - one concerns the Office clipboard memory being full, so not saving stuff that's copied, article 290373.

The knowledge base is at I searched for clipboard - if you want to look at the article I mentioned first, you can search for the article number.
