pasting formatted text just stopped working in writer!

While working on a few doc's in writer, the past command stopped working with copied text from outside of LO Writer. It still works from within LO. I can past via the "Unformatted text" option but the default stopped working via the Icon, edit and popup menu's as well as the keyboard shortcut. I can copy from the text editor and paste into other programs just fine. Restarting LO, and the PC make no difference.

I made no changes to anything, LO, my system, did not start any other programs... nothing, It just crapped out all of a sudden. But I did use Base to add some entries into a table and make a few changes to it and a form a few hours earlier, if that may tell you something, or be a clue.

A few days ago I tried to install the newest (Fresh) version of LO, but LibreOffice_4.4.2_Win_x86.msi gives me an error about "cabfile 1" being unreadable, I downloaded and tried installing it 3 times no difference, except the third try broke my 4.4.1.2 installation, so I reinstalled it. I have been using LO normally since then and did not have this problem until this morning.

LibreOffice Version: 4.4.1.2 Build ID: 45e2de17089c24a1fa810c8f975a7171ba4cd432 Locale: en_US on Windows 7 (everything up to date)

Also: Yes I do use a clipboard replacement (Yankee Clipper, and have for over 15 years), but it has not changed or stopped working... And I did turn it off completely and the problem still exists with the windows clipboard.

Thanks to anyone who can help!
