Windows 7: Having to refresh windows explorer nonstop

W7 upgrade from Vista. Well atleast it looks nice...
Having to refresh windows explorer nonstop

Am I the only one who has to refresh windows explorer after every single action. When I move a file to a folder, create a folder, rename a folder, delete a folder, anything I need to refresh the. I didnt realize this at first and created seven new folders at one point. it wasn't until I left the folder I was in and came back to it that I realized what was going on. Is this a glitch. Its a pretty big hassle trying to create several folders and trying to name different sections and having to refresh windows explorer to drag and drop any items into them. What can I do to fix this problem?

Your problem sounds a bit vague.. but you might try to use a repair disc, or system restore (if enabled)
but because of your type of problem, i recommend reinstalling it to avoid bsod's

Windows 7 Home Premium SP1, clean install, upgrade disc

If you do reinstall, make sure it is a clean install. You can try the repair option first.

I'm having this problem too. I did a clean install of Windows 7 Ultimate x64 yesterday and have been seeing this from the get-go. Have done no registry tweaks. The machine has 6gb of RAM of which less than 1/3 is in use. Never had this problem in 6+ months of running the RC.
