Excel files work perfectly, I can copy and paste all day long until I open Internet Explorer then Excel loses the paste functions other than paste as text. When you close the browser excel works as expected again.

Help please!

Sorry about suggesting the obvious but you never know the tech-awareness of people.

Here's a link to a thread at another site that talks about it.

MartinLiss - You are right about "tech-awareness".  I was looking into the add-ins as your link suggested.


I Uninstalled the program "Skype click to call" then rebooted the computer.  Not seeing the issue right now will post again if that is or is not the solution.
