This may happen if you use pc-selection-mode.

Solution 1: If you have


in your ~/.emacs, then replace it with

    (require 'pc-select)
    (setq pc-select-selection-keys-only t)

Solution 2: use

   M-x customize-variable RET pc-select-selection-keys-only

and set the variable "On".   

Solution 3: add to the bottom of ~/.emacs

    (global-set-key "\M-\d" 'backward-kill-word)
