    Getting someone elses clipboard?!?

    Last few days Ive had to recreate some IEP's from word files, so a lot of copying and pasting being done.

    Yesterday, randomly while doing it, I pasted what was meant to be part of the IEP but came out as a someone@renault.co.uk email address!

    Put it down to a weird one off, but it just happened again! Copied someones name, ended up pasting a long line about one of the teachers here, presumably from someone writing an appraisal or something.

    Anyone got any idea what could be going on?

    Mandatory or Roaming profiles?

    It really sounds like a profile problem. I'd be tempted to delete your profile and let another one be created.

    Have you tried this on another machine?

    Do you use any VNC based packages for monitoring, or did you have an RDP session open at the time? The shared clipboard can cause much hilarity. I was monitoring a student once and watched in horror as they clicked paste and a long line from a report I was writing was inserted into their document

    Yeah the same used to happen quite regularly to us at my last school, turned out Impero was to blame...
