      Also, when I had a similar issue, logging out and back in (not rebooting) resolved the problem. (That's quicker than rebooting.) I haven't had the problem in a while though since I defragmented my hard drive and ran the error-checking on the drive which it found errors (bad clusters) and fixed them. I'm using Vista 32-bit and NoteTab is installed to its default location with using its files from the User>AppData subfolder. I have the UAC fully enabled as well.

      It seems odd to me that it would be caused by the UAC when it works after a reboot. But who knows?! The UAC doesn't just work intermittently. It's either On and working or it's Off. :) Since flushing seems to help, that leads me to believe it's something with your hard drive or memory or a combination of the two with needing to defrag the hard drive or check for errors.

      Hopefully whatever causes the problem is figured out and fixed. I'd be curious to know what solves it for you if/when you get it resolved.

      Thank you, John. That sounds very promising and I will give it a try.

      I have to agree that I hate the heavy-handed BS in Windows 7 and wish dearly that I hadn't had to upgrade. What little I understand about the UAC I hate so far and it seems to be causing problems in other ways, so I can see this being the issue.

      I'll give it a try and report back.

      Also, I'm testing out a theory that flushing the clipboard solves the problem. I created a shortcut with the command prompt

      cmd.exe /c “echo off | clip”

      and, so far, it seems to work.

      Of course, I still want to solve the problem. Hitting a shortcut to flush the clipboard every fifth (or whatever) time I have to cut & paste is not a long term solution....
