Re: Copy and Paste Problems with NoteTab Pro 7.01/fv
Disk Error Check showing no errors of any kind.
The disk showed 0% defragmentation, but I ran defrag anyway.
My hard drive is almost 50% empty -- many, many gigs of open space.
I'm still having the problem, but thanks for the suggestions.

I wanted to let you know that this problem appears to be SOLVED!
I've been keeping an eye on my Task Manager today, focusing on CPU usage, and I noticed a program popping up repeatedly. (I can
thank this thread for that -- the various pointers to more complicated process viewers/managers got me as least monitoring Task
Manager -- so thanks for that). When I tracked it down, it turned out to be the WebRoot SecureAnywhere software, which was installed
on my laptop before I got it (I bought it from a big box store with the software all pre-loaded). I didn't even know it was on the
machine and in fact had since loaded my own security software.
Anyway, some Googling revealed that there's a list of "Protected Applications." And when I tracked down that sub-menu, sure enough,
there was listed NTP, EditPad, and even the directory I created to hold them -- all marked as "Deny". Once I switched them to
"Allow" my paste is again working. Why the ONLY thing it was denying was pasting is beyond me.
What a HUGE waste of time -- and I apologize to everyone who spent time on this as well. If I had known the software was on my
machine, I would've looked there FIRST (and DID check my OWN virus/security software way back).
Anyway, THANK YOU everyone for your help. And I figured I'd post up in case others ever have a similar problem.
