I know it sounds weird...but try using a different user account and doing the same operation. You may be dealing with a corrupt user account.

1) Make sure all updates of windows installed on the machine.
2) Make sure the Office has latest updates and service pack installed.
3) If any update installed reboot the machine then try to see if it is resolved.

Does this problem occur with two existing files?  Are you pasting from an existing to a new file?  I wonder if there is some corruption with file A or File B... or if it's a blank document, maybe there is corruption with your default template, (if that still exists in 2013).  Maybe you should try saving the source document in a different format (97-2003), close, then open... and see if you still have the same problem.

Try repair the Office. Control Panel Add/Remove Programs locate office and click change and select repair.

Once done Reboot and try again.

This does not happen when I log in with a different account on the same computer.. using the same installed version of Office 2013.

In this case, I believe there may be some corruption in the user account you are experiencing the issue in. I would copy the user files to a new account and that should correct your issue,

Ok, the same procedure for the file transfer for Win7 should still apply, the only difference is you will need to get  a new domain account  and login to create the profile before trying to copy the files.

move all the files to a network location, and then delete the domain profile from the local machine?

start > run > sysdm.cpl
advanced tab
user profiles > settings
find profile and delete.
Logging in user will then re-create them on that machine.

this of course AFTER you move all their files to a home folder first.
