Excel cannot empty the clipboard excel 2003 but only if drop 'n drag

32 bit Vista Home Premium with Office 2003 student/teacher edition current on all updates from MS.

In excel 2003 I can cut, copy, and paste with keyboard keys without issue but when I use the mouse and a drop 'n drag I get a "cannot empty the clipboard" error message. Transfer of information is completed once pressing the "OK" on the error message window.

I also have Contact2Copy program I use for gathering addresses that are copied to Outlook 2003. When I save what is copied Outlook crashes but the information is transferred and saved in Outlook. Anagram, the company behind Contact2Copy had a number of solutions but were not successful.

This is a recent occurrence for both programs.

Any suggestions?
