windows 7 Folder problems

I am recently new to windows 7 and honestly I'd like to heave this computer right out the window.

1. I have a persistent folder view settings issue...
I have followed the tutorial published by brink about this to no avail
I reset all folder to default then set the views
I then used a reg fix that posted by brink..and it worked
for about an hour.. and everything is back as before

2. my other issue is when opening folders or another windows they open on top of the window thats open.

3. when working in folders
if i am renaming files I am not able to see those changes unless I close the folder and reopen it.

Notice these are all related to my folders

on MS answers.
Every fix I know of for this is there already.

Folder Problems
In Vista I could right click on the start button, then open all users and change or add folders. I would do this more or less to keep the amount of items small. In Windows 7 any attempt to add a folder says it cannot because the folder is open somewhere else. ?
