Paste Special in Excel 2010 Bug

When  i am copying the content of cell containing forumlas to another cell, the formulas of the cell does replicate, instead the value of that cell comes up.

When I right Click on the cell the only paste options i get are option for text or unicode text . I have reinstalled Entire Office and the issue did not resolve


Note: This issue happens only when a Browser either Internet Explorer or Google Chrome is open.  If no browser is opened on my screen then the Paste Special options containing the formulas work perfectly fine.


I use Excel 2010 to copy paste link into my browser. I tried creating a new user profile and tested on 5 different computers was able to duplicate the issue on all.


It works perfectly fine for few minutes then when i keep shifting between excel and IE. this issue starts appearing.


The formula can be a simple formula as a :sum(A1:A15)


I searched on the Internet and found another user who has a similar issue :-
