    Try running Malware Bytes and install a proper antivirus tool. Windows Defender (or Security Essentials) is fine and free, so you might as well use it.

    Scan your PC with both, restart, use CCleaner to clean out any garbage and you're ready to go.

    How are you trying to copy and paste?
    There are multiple ways:

    - Keyboard: Ctrl + c and then Ctr + v
    - Mouse: Select text, right-click and click "copy". Right click somewhere else and then click paste.
    - Programs: Most programs will let you select text and then click on the menu where it says "Edit" and click copy. Same steps for "paste".

    Have you tried all of these methods?

    I don't understand why people come to BHW with such stupid issues before trying to Google?

    If you go Google the term "copy paste not working" you will get lots of results to suite your needs.

    Do a system restore, normally fixes anything.

    Yeah I know, BHW is most definitely a great place to ask questions of all kinds but I've got a feeling the OP hasn't even tried a single search. Kinda speaks about the OP's research skills.
