If you're talking about the MSOffice Clipboard then inside any program in the suite (eg Word, Access, Excel) go to View, Toolbars, Clipboard and click on the X icon to clear it.

when I copy an item for instance from the internet, and past it say into 'My Documents'. if I then try to use my 'Adobe Photo' program, I keep getting a pop up notice saying there is an item in the clipboard that cannot be accessed even though I dont want to use it, its very irritating!

Well, you can view (& delete, if you want) whatever is on the system clipboard using the Clipboard Viewer. It's an accessory that isn't always installed with Windows by default. If it is installed, in versions of Windows prior to XP it would be at Start -> Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Clipboard Viewer, I believe. If it isn't on your system you can install it via the Windows components installation thingy in the Add\Remove Programs applet.

In Windows XP it's called ClipBook Viewer, and even if it's installed it won't show up on the Start menu. The quickest way to get to it is Start -> Run -> type: clipbrd -> click OK. (If you want to make a shortcut to it, the filename is clipbrd.exe & it's in the Windows\System32 folder.)
