Find your folder options (type Folder Options in the Window's start button (bottom left of the task bar...you can probably get to it with Control Panel but this is fast). Click the View tab. Find Use Sharing Wizard and deselect it.
Seriously. I have been fighting this for quite a while and had to turn it on (already had if off to see if it fixed my problem -- NOT) to finally see the file deleted disappear from explorer list without a refresh (F5)! Specifically:
I create a test.doc file in MY Documents folder. Could delete it, but it always continued to show in explorer file list until F5 refresh. Now, please note: my access to this was through LIBRARIES->Documents->test.doc. This always failed and required F5. However, if I accessed through User-> My Documents -> test.doc it WOULD disappear from explorer file list. I also originally had other issues with the access through LIBRARIES, such as, rename would not show new name until F5, EDIT (MSFT WORD) test.doc would show temp file ~test.doc until F5. As before, these problems only showed when looking at the list via LIBRARIES. The temp file showing was resolved when I changed Folder Options to NOT show hidden files. All the other problems essentially were resolved by turning off INDEXING (COMPUTER, RC drive, Properties, General Tab, uncheck "Allow...indexing.." The DELETE problem remained after this because I had the "Use Sharing..." OFF. When I checked it on, DELETEs now worked.
In summary, my solution to the DELETE, RENAME, MOVE was to STOP INDEXING. All other attempts at numerous sites were useless.I am on Windows 7 by the way.
