A strange problem: I am used to highlighting text in a document to copy it and paste it elsewhere, but my Dell Dimension mouse (looks like it's made by Logitech, if that helps) does not always copy the highlighted text when I do either a right-click and "copy" from the menu, or "Ctrl-C" on the keyboard. When I go to "paste" or "Ctrl-V" on the keyboard, nothing happens. Sometimes, it seems, it takes 3-4 times to perform the "paste", if at all. Most annoying.
Sometimes it works; sometimes it doesn't. I note that I recently tried to highlight words that were hyperlinked words, and they did not copy. Whether or not this is always the case, I don't know. I would like to put this problem out there for a solution, please. I did a troubleshoot on my mouse using the built-in troubleshooter, and it said it was working properly.
Appreciate any help with this.
Reminds me of the Blaster Worm we had 6 months ago. You might need to do a virus scan and then go to the Microsoft website at http://www.microsoft.com and download the patch.
