Well, you could try doing a system restore using a restore point dated before this started happening to hopefully fix it.

i tried it, but it made no difference, so I reversed it...this problem started when I installed windows 7 service pack 1, so i think ill call microsoft for technical support, thanks

Oh, did I mention that this only happens when trying to rename/move a folder, not an individual file?

It can't hurt to run a disk check to see if there are free space indexing issues or the like:
