A website has a lot of writing that is not seen. It tells the browser (IE, FireFox, etc...) how to show it. Some examples are: bold, different colors, different sizes and more. When you copy, you are including a lot of this hidden code. This could be causing your word processor to 'cough'. When you PASTE SPECIAL, only the text gets pasted.

I have a Compaq Presario V2000 that was having problems with the hard drive (freezing up, shutting down, running slow, and blue screen errors). It wouldn't let me do a system restore and it wouldn't let me run in safe mode. I tried to repair the OS, but the process kept stopping and shutting down. I tried to REINSTALL the OS, and it would get to 45% and would shut down. Is my hard drive fried? If so, how can I replace it with a new one?
