Eliminate 'Several URLs found in clipboard' dialogue/warning when copying a page of text

When copying any text on an internet page that contains a URl and using Windows 8, I always received the unwanted message, "Several URLs found in clipboard.  Do you want to download them?"

I want to save a step by not seeing this dialogue but cannot find a way to turn it off. Is there such a way, registry, some other option, and if so, please talk me through it.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I can't reproduce your problem.. what steps do you do that create this problem?  Are you using the office clipboard and not the windows clipboard?

I'm simply using my mouse to cut and paste from any internet page. Once the text having an embedded URL link is outlined then selecting COPY, I get the warning. This  is on Windows 8 Pro desktop.

This sounds like there is a "helper" application running that monitors the Clipboard.

I suggest manually scanning the system with the antivirus set at most sensitive level, then use the freeware version of Malwarebytes, then use the freeware version of Spybot - Search and Destroy.  If none of these reveal the culprit, then obtain the Microsoft Autoruns tool and see what is automatically running at startup.
