Try resetting your Illustrator preferences:

https://community.adobe.com/t5/illustrator/how-to-reset-illustrator-preferences/td-p/10602277?page=1

When you install or re-install, I believe the install default is to pick up your existing preferences, which you don't want, if that is the source of the problem.

Sorry, I have never been notified of this and have not seen you respond
Thanks for the comment

 

Which version of Illustrator exactly is it?

It happens in every version I install, I tried a few, yesterday I installed the most up to date

 

Are you sure about clipboard extension?

not really understand what you mean

I have attached here a video with the problem

 

Also: can you shut down all other apps (yes this includes your browser, email and stuff like that)

and then what?

Do you remember what you were doing right before it came back? As Monica suggested, there may be a plug-in, or some other app that is changing your keyboard shortcuts, can you copy/paste using the mouse only? Is Illustrator up to date? Is your PC up to date?

This problem seems like something you might see when the Illustrator version is not compatible with the computer OS, if so, you may need to download and install an earlier version. Does resetting the preferences fix it again? You could try using the uninstall tool located in the Illustrator application folder (if you have not already tried this), then doing a fresh install.

I am on a Mac, there is an Alias in the Illustrator application folder which opens the uninstall tool located in Library/Application Support/Adobe/Uninstall/ILST_25_0.app

I don't know where this would be on your PC,  perhaps someone else will know. What version of Windows are you using? You could try uninstalling from the cloud again, making sure you select Do not use the existing preferences when you re-install.

You can also contact Adobe directly, perhaps they can help.

With Illustrator open, at the top of your screen, go to Help> Illustrator Help> Support> Contact us.

I still think it may be a version compatibility issue.

Good luck!
