Drag and Drop Code Functionality

I have two different PC's - an older one with Windows XP SP3, IE8, Matlab R2011a (32bit) and a newer computer - Win7 SP1, IE8, Matlab 2011a (64bit). For some reason on the newer PC I am no longer able to drag and drop code from IE8 straight into the Matlab window. I do this all the time as I look things up and subsequently test them.
Anyone know why this is? Is it something to do with my setup, or a difference in secrity on the machines.
Thanks, Brian

Do you have MATLAB set up to Run As Administrator on your Windows 7 machine? If you do then your IE8 process is not running as the same user as MATLAB is, and that might lead to trouble with drag and drop (I guess)

Both are setup and running under my Windows username. Could it possibly be because it's a 32 bit version of IE8 and a 64bit version of Matlab?
