    I encountered the same error on my Windows 7 machine with Excel 2010. It seems the problem for me was caused by a Skype add-on with Chrome, IE, and Forefox. In cases where either Chrome, IE or Firefox is open, and I’m working in Excel 2010, the error occured. I went into all of the browsers and “disabled” any add-on related to Skype. This solved my problem. I would rather disable the Skype add-on than deal with this annoying issue.

    Removing a Skype plugin from Chrome browser eliminated this bug for me.

    Look in your running processes for the word "clip". For me it was a process called issclipexec.exe, which is Remote Control Clip Monitor related to the company's LANdesk software.

    For me it was Flashget, yet another one to add to the list.

    Thanks for the link, I was having the same issue and one of the responses on this website did it.

    For me the problem was the Skype add-in for the Chrome browser. I disabled it and the problem goes away.

    Cheers,

    Rob

    My god, it took me ages to find out which program was using the clipboard. I subsequently shut down all the applications one by one, and I found the bad cop. It was MultiMonitor. It creates a second (and third) taskbar which will be put on extended monitors. Each taskbar display items from that monitor only. Only there is an option to enable the 'Text Clipboard Extender', which I never used so far. Disabling this solved my problem.

    Hope it helps

    Disabling the Skype Add-On worked for me too.

    Just in case you are unsure how to do this (I was):

    1. In Internet Explorer, click on 'Tools' on the top toolbar
    2. Select the 'Manage add-ons' option from the menu that appears
    3. 'Toolbars and Extensions' should automatically be selected in the left-hand 'Add-on Types' list. If not, click on 'Toolbars and Exensions'
    4. Use the right-hand scroll bar to scroll down to 'Skype Technologies SA'
    5. Click on 'Skype Click to Call' then click the 'Disable' button on the bottom-right of the window
    6. A smaller pop-up will appear asking if you want to disable the add-on. It will also tell you that 'Skype Browser Helper' will also be disabled. Click 'Disable'.
    7. Click 'Close' on the bottom of the window.

    I then had to re-start my PC to get this to take effect. I no longer get the irritating message! Hooray!!

    the Bing Desktop V1.1 also tries to grab Clipboard information causing this problem. I can't see a way to change that setting within the bar, so I've temporarily disabled it for one of my users

    I signed up just to say thank martinitram that was my issue, I could not for the life of me figure out what was going on and since I spend a great amount of time in excel at work this as saved me.

    I had the same issue and got it to go away by closing Kleopatra (from the taskbar).
