One thing to try- no harm. Try picking the spot you are going to clone from- alt key and click somewhere. I have seen an occasional error message when I get ahead of myself and that fixes it. Your issue is likely something else- but this would take 2 seconds to check and would be a lot easier than a reinstall.
