Windows 7: Desktop doesn't refresh.

Desktop doesn't refresh.

Whenever I download a file, it won't appear on my desktop unless I manually refresh with F5.

Same goes with unrarring files, if I have a rar and I unrar it, the unrarred file will only appear by manually refreshing :S.

Any ideas on how to fix this?

Thanks for that link, but I haven't found anything useful.

I do remember now that I accidentally deleted the ''Desktop'' folder from my folder, (Which has the computer name) and restored it back, and since then I have to refresh.

Run an elevated command prompt and run sfc /scannow to see if you have any corrupt system files.

Forum doesn't refresh to show my post?
This is strange. After I post a reply in any topic, I don't see it, when I go back to that forum section, or when I open that topic?! I do however see the entry if I click on my posts or Today's posts. I've tried IE8 and Firefox: the same effect. Please help. Thanks.
