Identity Protection and Windows Clipboard

I had no idea that WRSA was watching the Clipboard.  Yes, I see it listed as something which is monitored, but I was unaware that "normal" use of the Clipboard would suddenly be blocked.

 

I spent quite a while chasing ghosts before I found the problem and set the blocked applications to "Protect" in the Identity Protection section of WRSA.

 

Apparently WRSA knows about cut and paste with standard applications, such as Microsoft Office, Outlook Express, etc.  It even allows somewhat obscure compilers, like PureBasic.  But an Australian program (ToDoList) wasn't identified as benign and it got blocked.

 

Because WRSA did this "quietly", I had functional cut and paste which suddenly stopped working.  For one application.

 

So, the advice to others is that, if your cut and paste functionality suddenly quits for one application, check Identity Protection to see if that application has been blocked.

Thanks for posting this tip.  There are a lot of applications out there, so ToDoList must not be on our whitelist.  As long as you can manually whitelist it then things are ok, but if that ever fails you can contact us to get that resolved.

Hi sherjj

 

What I believe that Nic is referring to when he speaks about 'manually whitelisting' is what the OP advised when they said "...check Identity Protection to see if that application has been blocked."

 

You can find the advanced optiosn for  Identity Protection as follows:

 

1. Click on the gear/cog to the right of the Identity protection tab on the main screen.

2. Click on the tab marked 'Application Protection' that is shown on the new page you see.

3. There you will see application listed with rights as either 'Protect', 'Allow' or 'Deny'

 

This is all covered in the following two help topics Managing Identity Protection & Managing protected applications which should cover all you need to know.

 

HTH?  But if yo have any further questions please come back.

You should be able to post a new thread on any of the public fora.  What seems to be the problem?
