Default Copy/Paste error

I frequently see the attached screen when using Microsoft Office and when using other non-MS programs I have started getting a 521 error.



What is going on here?

My PC is full up to date and I use the Professional version of BitDefender for my anti-malware which gives me a clean bill of health.



Any ideas on what is causing this error? It is very frustrating.

There is no 'attached screen' in your post. You can attach a screenshot to a post via the paperclip symbol on the 'Go Advanced' tab at the bottom of this screen.

That looks like a display driver issue. Try updating it.

How would the display driver throw up a 521 error?

Can't open Clipboard (Error 521)

The Clipboard has already been opened by another application. This error has the following cause and solution:

Another application is using the Clipboard and won't release it to your application. Set an error trap for this situation in your code and provide a message box with Retry and Cancel buttons to allow the user to try again after a short pause.


Regards,
Adrian
