OK Then my guess is that the fresh install is not so fresh! Did the PC come with Win 7 installed? If so how did you do a "fresh install"? If not pre installed did you upgrade sometime to Win 7?
EDIT
Just checked the times of these posts. Are you sure you followed that link completely, if so you did it very quickly?

This was a fresh fresh install. I swapped the mechanical HDD with a 512GB Crucial M4 so I needed to install Windows. It was Windows 7 Ultimate + SP1. The "item not found" error was there right from the start.

And yes, I used option 2 and logged in to the Super Admin account and the registry edit/hack still did not work.

But the idea of going into the Default admin was to see if the problem was still there, I didn't mention trying the registry hack. I would NEVER advise anyone to touch the registry without first making a backup. Was the Win 7 disc an original and did it come supplied with the PC? If you would like to complete your system specs it would save a bit of time!

Yes, the error was still there in the Super Admin account. The Windows 7 I installed was an extra copy I had lying around. System specs are also updated.

Then I guess the spare copy was corrupt somewhere. Was it an OEM copy from another PC perhaps. Suggest you get an original MS disc and try that!

No sir, it was an original MS disc. I really want to fix this error without losing any of my data... It is really annoying.

Well if as you say this started from day one of the new install did you not already have you data saved to an external source from the old HD. If so can you not try a new install and reinstate the data from the old stored source?

Nope, I replaced the HDD immediately, so this SSD is the only place where I have the data. I'm not worried about backing up data, I'm worried about losing installed programs and settings and such.

"Item Not Found" when Moving or Renaming
Every time I move or rename a folder, an "Item Not Found" dialog opens. It says "Could not find this item. This is no longer located in C:\...". When I click "Try Again", it moves/renames just fine. Does anyone know why it's happening and how I can make it stop? It's incredibly annoying.

"Item Not Found" is driving me nuts
Hi all! For some unknown reason, my 64-bit 7 gives "Item Not Found" dialog whenever I try to move/delete a folder or an archive. All I have to do is to click "Try Again" for the command to go through, but it's driving me insane. What's wrong with my 7? Sample dialog box in an attachment.
