So, it's either a bug in IE or a bug in vBulletin.

Workaround: don't use WYSIWYG mode or use CTRL-C, CTRL-X or CTRL-V to copy, cut or paste text.
Yes I was using the WYSIWYG editor and as you described that's the cause of the problem. However if I switch off wysiwyg using the "A/A" button the text I type appears as very light grey against the white background, almost not visible.

Using the Keyboard commands solves the problem.
For shame I should have thought of that; no excuse other than that us older folk, well we sometimes suffer the odd brain-fart.

Thanks for the help
