    Shortcut Keys Quit (W XP SP 1 Word 2000)

    A friend reports that all of a sudden the shortcut keys for cut, copy and paste (Cntrl+X, C & V respectively) stopped working. (Other shortcut keys work OK.) Had to reboot the computer to get them back, and this keeps re-occurring. Any ideas on what's causing this and how to fix it?

    Sounds as though some other program is stealing those key assignments. The most benign explanation would be that a particular template or document has custom key settings stored in it, or that a misbehaved add-in has grabbed them. The other scenario, some kind of trojan/virus, is more troubling...
