Windows 7: Folder tree expansion causing explorer to jump down

24 Aug 2010   #11

Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit

Usually, I can pinpoint the cause of these apparent glitches, but I have no clue what would cause such behavior. Until I learn more (which might be a while since school starts for me tomorrow, and I shouldn't even be awake right now) try opening an elevated command prompt, and typing "SFC /SCANNOW". If a corrupted system file is causing the problem, that should fix it.

Lots of people including me with fresh installs on both 32bit and 64bit platforms have this problem. This does not occur every time, but only on certain specific situations.
