Unhappy Copy/paste not working in my virtual box - CentOS 6.5


I sure hope someone can help me as I am new to Linux. I have a virtual machine installed on my Windows 8 computer and the virtual machine has CentOS 6.5 and after an update I can no longer copy/paste from outside sources (such as my from my e-mail from Gmail into my terminal in the virtual machine). I do have bidirectional under the advanced tab.

Any help would be appreciated!

Sorry, but I don't know what you mean by that? All I know is I am using Virtual Box from Virtualbox.org

Chances are the update included a kernel update, which means the guest additions will need to be recompiled/reinstalled. You should be able to do this the same way you did it initially.

I actually did reinstall the guest additions because my pointer at the bottom all of a sudden had said pointer is not captured so I thought that might have something to do w/ it. I am going to post some screenshots here.

Suicidaleggroll how do I remove the guest additions first so can re-install as I only see info to install when I search?

Thanks
