    Hi all!

    Since yesterday I can no longer COPY & PASTE any text from my browser to NOTEPAD or inside NOTEPAD itself, whereas I have no problems to do the opposite operation (copy & paste from NOTEPAD to Browser).

    That means that even the URL ADDRESSES cannot be copied and pasted anymore, although my PC looks free from any bloody virus or spyware.

    What's going on, dudes?


    And above all: how can I fix this annoying issue?


    Ths in advance for your consideration!!

    Are you using Prevx, perhaps? If so, removing and reinstalling it might solve your problem.

    YES!!


    I'm using PREVX SAFEONLINE....I've just disabled it and now copy &paste works fine.

    You are a GENIUS man...LOL!


    But what's the cause of this? A BUG of the program?

    Can it be solved once & for all by removing & installing Prevx?

    Just lower the safeonline protection from "max" to "high"

    I have no problem copying from the browser and pasting into Notepad with SafeOnline protection set at max.

    Maybe giovi99 should ask PrevxHelp on the Prevx forum. There could be some other conflict in his system, and it's a pity to drop the protection level if it's not absolutely necessary.
