Check these previously asked questions. The drag & drop/Cut & paste issue comes up frequently:

(Sometimes when I cut and paste URL's it looks ok to me but once the answer is posted, an extraneous space will have crept in. Make sure you delete any extraneous spaces or the page won't load).

For example, in the second URL there's a
" %20" that needs to be deleted.

Sounds like something funny is going on. If the same user was able to do this previously and suddenly it stopped working I would look at 3 things. First Check for yourself that no programs have been loaded including screen savers, funny cursor buttons etc. Then I would think about running a check disk to see if you are getting errors on the hard drive. Lastly I would reinstall the service pack. I probably would upgrade to a more current service pack actually but that can be very political at some facilities.

I had a user that had the same problem only intermitently. Changing the PS/2 mouse fixed the problem. You may want to reload the mouse drivers if replacing the mouse
