    Hi, a quick glance (below) looks like that may be possible, but you will need to explore further.. however, references say this cannot be done for Windows as a whole (Google search).

    This includes a small script to monitor and clear the clipboard as a workaround, as well as comments on this.

    Some AVs can block it, like Webroot or Kaspersky, or specifically anti-keyloggers like Spyshelter.

    Or you could create a script to clear clipboard and run it every second. Not very effective though.
    cmd /c "echo off | clip"

    Just a note, if you have a later version of Microsoft Office installed, it has its own clipboard feature, can hold more things/clips than the Windows Clipboard, like maybe 24.
