Microsoft Remote Desktop Copy-Paste Issue

I have a PC running Windows 7 at my office for work related stuff which I frequently log into via Microsoft Remote Desktop from my Mac. Suddenly this morning the clipboard functions (copy-paste texts between my Mac and the remote desktop) didn't work as it used to. A little digging around the web led me to this article from Techulator about the exact same issue I had. The solution is pretty simple actually, you just need to find the process running a program called rdpclip.exe in Task Manager, kill it, then restart the process. The clipboard works again.
