I use Opera as my main browser and you can copy/paste into Word from Opera without 'winword.exe' requesting internet access. I daresay that applies to copying from Firefox too, but I can't confirm that as I don't use it.
There's evidently some correlation going on between Microsoft applications here. But it is possible to 'break' that by using a different web-browser.
That tip worked..I started using opera and now i do not get the error.Than you so much!!!
Just one question though ,when this problem occured I changed the copy paste settings form word options> advanced, thinking there was a problem there.
Now if I copy and paste from a website the font is still the normal word format that I use.Can you tell what should be the settings if i need to retain the original font?
