I am using Windows XP. I have Adobe's Creative Suite 3 loaded on the machine. While I'm working (usually while opening e-mails or files), a series of three items are stored to the Windows clipboard. When I view the clipboard, I see the attached screen shot.
I recognize the "Ct" icon as Contribute, but I do not use this application. It is on my machine because it is packaged with CS3. I've asked other people who have CS3, and this does not seem to be normal behavior. My clipboard is always full within an hour of logging in, and nothing stays in the clipboard for long, as these sequences of three bump the clipboard elements off.
How can I stop Contribute (or whatever application is causing this) from hijacking my clipboard?
