Copy and Paste Screen Captures Into Photoshop Not Working, Adobe Photoshop CS4 Clipboard Problem

Recently I was trying to paste a screenshot created using print screen into Adobe Photoshop CS4 on Windows XP but nothing would happen. I use print screen to create screenshots on a regular basis and then paste the results into Photoshop so I can describe how to resolve basic issues on a computer to people. I have never had a problem until this time so I figured it must be a configuration setting or something similar causing the issue.
