Bizzare copy/paste "lag" issue.
Whenever I am using MS Office applications, I encounter a bizzare, and very anoying problem copying and pasting.
However, the problem also occurs in other applications like graphical analysis, etc. (non MS office apps).
When I try to copy something, I get the loading cursor and on average it takes about 10 seconds of loading time for the selected data to be copied. This includes small amounts of data, single words, etc.
I don't think it's a hardware issue, as my laptop is fairly new, and can support games like guild wars etc. I can provide specifics if necessary. I am suspecting it is a virus of some sort, but I wanted to check with you guys first.
