Windows 7: Win7 Home, problems with Windows Explorer

Win7 Home, problems with Windows Explorer

High there all, I'm having a problem with Win 7, Home Ed. & 2x Windows Explorers open at the same time.

I use the 2 windows to copy/move/re-name etc files between different folders as required.

What is happening is that I can work on one of the folders, all ok, I move on to the 2nd to say re-name a file, when I right click on a file to 're-name' both folders instantly close down, the screen refreshes and the DVD drive sounds as though it's just powering up. Not just re-naming, it could be any function selected.

I have to then start all over again and within a few minutes the same thing will happen all over again.
System Restore does nothing, any ideas please, it's starting to drive me mad!
