Cannot rename new folder in directory in vista

Since receiving my copy of Vista Ultimate I have, after much tweaking experienced no problems. System very stable and am I impressed.

For some reason which I have been unable to find a solution cropped up today.

I can create a new folder in any directory, but when I attempt to rename that folder an error dialog box appears which says the file or folder does not exist and naturally I am unable to rename. I can delete the titled New Folder.

I was able to perform normal renaming of folders previously (yesterday) and nothing has changed - no installation of new programs etc. System has been checked and no trojans/viruses/malware detected. Not using IE7.

Any assistance /advice would be appreciated.


Thanks for your reply.

Nothing of note. Just using classic start menu , windows explorer opening as per-%SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /e,c:. Everything was working for days then this. I dont use system restore but ghost to backup hd. Have been doing this for years-never a problem. This problem somehow occcured from when I last renamed a folder yesterday and I ghosted later in the day as problem still exists when I restored my ghosted hd in an attempt to cure the problem.

I have UAC disabled from basically from day1 (drove me nuts)

Hope you can assist.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
