Copy and paste function not working

I for some reason cannot copy and paste file from one program to another.
I hightlight the text, click copy, which is hightlighted, then open another app. and the paste button is not hightlighted.
I can however copy and paste within the document I'm working in at that particular moment.
Some thing in the settings maybe??
Anyone have any ideas?
Thanx
Jim

Some programs and website, can be setup to prevent anyone from copying any of it's material.

I can copy and paste within the word document I'm working in, but if I copy from the word document I'm in and close the window and open word again to paste into a new document I can't. Same program, same PC.

Actually it's a friends computer and I am tutoring her and todays lesson was working with documents. I don't think she has ever used the copy and paste, so who knows when it actually started.
I know it has to be something simple, but I've never had to deal with it not working on my PC's before, so I'm a little dumbfounded. Kinda emmbaressing too since she's paying me for my time.
Maybe something in admin. tools, services, I dunno.
Yeah Wierd, copy and paste is what made windows so popular. It's a basic function.
Thanx for your replies wolf. I appreciate it. See what you can find.
Anyone HELP!!

I was thinking it might actually be something to do with services or permissions.
