Copy, Cut and Paste and attaching documents degrading

MacMini with Parallels 7 and XP Pro

Capability of copy and paste from Windows side to Mac side has stopped or behaves strangely, such as pasting pastes the copy immediately previous to the latest copy.

Also can no longer attach documents from Mac desktop to messages in Outlook on the Windows side.  (Outlook in Office for Mac stopped a while earlier, and using Outlook on the windows side has been the workaround.)

Any suggestions?

Try to reinstall Outlook for Mac.

Try to reinstall Parallells.

Try VirtualBox instead of Parallells (long route, but works good for me).

Got Outlook for Mac working again, with Repair, as I recall.   That made the need to copy and paste from the Windows side to the Mac side unnecessary, so I pursued it no further.  Copy and paste entirely on the Mac side or entirely on the Windows side worked OK all along.
