Hi,

Whenever I start a new spreadsheet in Excel, and I type data into a cell and then I move this cell using the mouse, an error "Cannot empty clipboard" appears. If I uses the ctrl-c --- ctrl-v option this works fine.

If this only happens in Excel try installing the Office 97 patch, which is found at:
http://www.microsoft.com/office/office/enhancements/sr1off97.asp

If that doesnt work, try uninstalling and then reinstalling Office 97.

If both of the above suggestions do not work, then you must have a corrupt file in Win95...

You should reinstall Win95 in this case. It is a good idea to reinstall periodically anyways, you will notice less crashes, and even possibly better performance.

Hope this helps
