All of a sudden, the normal CTRL + C and CTRL + V keystrokes stopped working.
Does anyone know what to do to restore these keystrokes as shortcuts???
This is very annoying, especially when trying to copy and paste links, long
account numbers, and other normal functions I usually perform on the web.
Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

Just the web? Empty your Internet temp cache, in Internet Explorer, tools, Internet
options, delete files.

Which is it, "Copy & paste stopped working" or "the normal CTRL + C and CTRL + V keystrokes stopped working"?

I am having the same problem and already tried to delete my Internet temp
cache. I am using word and internet explorer and after I have been working
for maybe 45 minutes I cannot use either control C, control V or the actual
copy and paste function from the file menu. I am not able to copy and paste
from internet explore to word, word to IE, or even word to word. It has been
doing this off and on all week. What would you recommend I do.
