A user of mine is having intermittent problems copying articles from website on Internet Explorer and pasting them to Word.  I'm not sure where to begin with this problem.  I'm defraging the HD and made sure the RAM and  SWAP file are adequate.  I will also install Firefox to see if helps the next time it happens.

Symptoms:
1.  The problem has corrected itself with the good ole reboot.  
2.  Other programs don't have slow response.
3.  It sometimes takes up to 10 mins

Could it have something to do with flash or scripts or something?

Thanks,
 DAve
