Guest Author: Clipper 25 Jun 2013 If killing/restarting rdpclip.exe does not work for you. Start Remote Desktop Session Host Configuration (tsconfig.msc), go to the properties of the RDP-Tcp session and on the Client Settings tab make sure that Clipboard Redirection is unchecked. You will need to disconnect and reconnect for the change to take effect.
You may still need to kill/restart rdpclip.exe. If that still doesn't work for you.
Go to the Group Policy Management Console. In Computer Configuration Policies Administrative Templates Windows Components Terminal Services Terminal Server Device and Resource Redirection and make sure that the 'Do not allow Clipboard redirection' setting is Disabled.

After a lot of research, I noticed that my paste issue only occurred when I had my browser running. It transpired, that is was when any browser (Firefox, Safari, IE, etc) was running. Long story short, it was my Webroot security software blocking some of my programs which were attempting to read the Clipboard.
It makes sense, I have a browser open so I wouldn't want an untrusted application gaining access to my clipboard as it may contain a password. I just hadn't realized that it was doing this.
When I disabled the Protect Clipboard Data option, everything worked again. Webroot prompted me to disallow / allow a particular program to access the clipboard, with an option to remember my choice.

I would guess that other security suites use this methodology so if you are experiencing paste issues, you may find it beneficial to check your security suites settings.

Few years ago I found information that Microsoft has no intentions to fix this bug. It has to do with some kind of resource limitation or leaks.
There are several data structures that haven't changed since the beginning of RDP, when memory was expensive en every free KB mattered. Some of the cause problems in high resolutions and when you have loaded Remote Desktop Servers.
