Excel 2016 Clipboard problem message

I have recently upgraded from Office 2010 to Office 2016.  My operating system is Windows 10.
In Excel 2016, I randomly get the following message when copying & pasting cells from one range to another:

"There's a problem with the clipboard, but you can still paste your content within this workbook"

So far it appears to complete the 'Paste' function correctly, but it is frustrating to be interrupted with having to click 'OK' on this dialog box before continuing.
It does this while running VB routines also, which can be confusing to the user.

Is that any way to disable or avoid this Dialog box?

That is an issue that I receive occasionally, the only solution that I have found is to manually clear the clipboard

Open the clipboard from the Ribbon's Home Tab (extreme left of the tab)

I may have stumbled across an answer.  I have 'Beyond Compare 4' installed on my computer.  One of it associated add-ins is 'Clipboard Compare'.  I noticed that if I 'Exit' that programs in the Task Bar, that I don't seem to get that error message.  I Haven't yet had time to test that theory very thoroughly.  Not seeing any other users respond yet, I assume it is not very common, so I'll close this request.

I have a program called ClipX  for multi-clipboard capability and I can confirm that this does cause this error. If I turn it off I don't get the error at all. With it on, I do anytime I paste anything in Excel with more that one field copied to paste. So either ClipX doesn't like multiple cells from Excel, or Excel doesn't like the database of the program. When I cleared the clipboard entries the first copy/paste of multiple cells didn't have the error. The second one did. I have my ClipX settings set to paste the second to most recent. I would assume any clipboard manager with multiple clips would do the same. Maybe some of the newer windows apps it's different.
