Default Cntrl c/v bug

Hi! Can't copy (using any command) from or within my browser (Firefox). Can copy from Office 2003 into browser but not vice versa. Can copy and paste eg audio files using Explorer into Nero. Get the picture?! Basically cntrl c isn't working in Firefox though I suspect it's not directly FF problem as I've just installed a new version. anyone help?
Using Win XP.

I've had random things like this happen to me before. So before we go into more technical troubleshooting, have you tried restarting yet? Ctrl+C/V have acted weird before and restarting corrected it.

Hi Nathan, yes I've tried rebooting. This has been going on for about a week now! I think it corresponds with the time I installed Regsitry Mechanic (but I could be wrong on that one).

Default Would you believe it? Probably!

Hi, it's resolved itself!! I haven't done anything at all, just logged on, tried it out of habit and low and behold - back to normal.
I'd love to know how this happened but I guess it'll remain forever a mystery.
Many thanks for your time and help.

So I guess the restart did work? Just not the first time? See, I've had this problem before too and it simply resolved itself.
