I'm running Windows 7 on my host machine using Microsoft Virtual PC; copy-and-paste was working previously but now is not. Is there are shortcut or quick setting I may have flipped?

Please make sure you install the Virtual Machine Additions. As well as speeding up the virtual machine, it should enable you to perform Copy and Paste as well as a few other features.

If you already have it installed, go to Settings > Integration Features, and make sure that Clipboard is ticked.
