Hi everybody,

I have developed a problem in Word.
When I try to copy and paste any text into Word there is pasted the phrase "Hello!". The source text is not pasted.

I work with SDL Trados. But this happens both when Trados is on and I am in the segments and when it is off. It does not work either from using shortcut keys or menu.

In the evening everything worked OK and this problem appeared first thing in the morning.

Also I have found that shortcut keys combinations for "paste" and "cut" functions have disappered (for "copy" it did not disappear) and I should define them again.

Dear Marina,

I believe, that your computer is infected by virus. If such virus is not detected by your anti-virus programm, use other AV-soft.

Best Regards,
