Im sure its something to do with security fix KB958437. If you unistall this in, add remove programs(make sure show updates is ticked) then 2003 microsoft office system you should be able to do it again

It might be something as simple as the clipboard is full, try emptying it first as this would be an easy solution

Hi Tanchi, what happens if you try and copy using the Clipboard Toolbar? (If don't know - View > Toolbars > Clipboard)

thinking about my suggestion its possibly not that as im sure it wont let you do it at all. Although might be worth a try
