vi copy/paste problem

I'm having a problem copy/pasting from a txt file in windows to vi. What happens is I copy a chunk of text, go to the putty terminal, go into insert mode, and right click, and it will stop pasting at a random point and freeze up. Nothing I do gets out of it.

This only happens on my account but from any machine. If someone else logs in their account on my computer it's fine. If I log in on another computer it will happen, so I'm pretty sure it's not putty settings.

Word wrap is off on notepad. It's not reading any special characters because I've tried pasting a block of text without any.

Log on as yourself and run:

Compare the output of env with that of a user who does not experience the problem.

Are the others using the same P.C. as you as succeeding with pasting into putty?
