Vista: I can't copy, cut or paste but i can dag and drop.. Please help

Hi there

I have windows vista ultimate 64 with sp2. It has worked fine until recently.

For some weird reason I can't cut, copy, or paste anything in windows, however I can drag and drop even move files like that.

Does anyone know how i can fix this? I would really like to be able to highlight a file, right click and say cut or copy and then paste it wherever...

This is very annoying... :(

    Anom. you're certainly not alone. I share your grief as I use this all the time. I'm going to explore this and if I hit pay dirt, I'll immediately post it (Vista 64 SP2). Here's hoping!
    Good luck, Dan
