I'm running Win 7 x64 Pro. If I leave my computer up for more than a few hours my copy and paste no longer works, on anything. I can not copy files and paste them elsewhere, txt, anything.

If I reboot, its back to normal, for a few hours. Any ideas?

Files aren't the only things copied/cut/pasted. The OP's also mentioned that the entire clipboard's broken. – afrazier Dec 14 '10 at 20:49
