    Have a wierdism where selecting text with ctrl-c and pasting with
    ctrl-v will paste an screenshot.

    edit/copy and edit/paste works fine though.

    Any thoughts?

    Have you installed any helper apps recently? Such as those "create
    screen shots easily" apps that float around the 'net, for instance. (To
    me it sounds as a keyboard hook some app might have installed.) If yes,
    check its settings. You might be able to turn that "feature" off.

    Don't know which version of Windows you're using, but if you have XP
    (maybe also on Win2k), try the C-A-Del chord, and select the
    "Processes" tab. Perhaps you'll find something there that looks

    Other places to check are
    Control Panel -->
    Keyboard settings,
    Language settings
    ....and so on.
