As the link says, although some of the \s do not appear on mine, simply find an XP computer and copy the file %windir%\system32\clipbrd.exe from the XP computer and paste it in the same spot on the Windows 7 computer (%windir%\system32). Richt cllick on it and select Make shortcut. Then drag the shortcut to your desk top.

I just did exactly that and it works fine. The clipboard initially comes up minimized in the lower left corner of the window and needs to be expanded to see in it.

If you do not have access to a Windows computer and would like me to email it to you just drop me an email at my address in my profile.
