I have 3 client work station that just this morning stopped being able to paste.
They can copy, but not paste, I switch over to the admin account and the paste works.
Anyone know how I can fix this, it's crazy, right?
The workstations are 64 bit Vista Business.

Thanks all.

Just a thought could you try to disable User Account Control for one of the users and see if this resolves?

If it does try to enable it again and see if it stays stable.

I went into the service and was not able to find any of the service you asked me to restart.
Any idea why none show up?

The instructions PantherTech provided are for Windows XP. Vista and above don't have those services.
