RapidShare is a conduit, not a source.

I had the same issue, having to refresh after deleting a file in order for it to 'go away'. I found the solution was to
  • open explorer
  • click 'Organize' then 'Folder and Search options'
  • click the 'View' tab then click 'Reset Folders'
In conclusion, some modification to the folder activity & layout was causing this issue but i never found out exactly what it was

This did not work for me. This isn't about folders, it's about a file on the desktop that when you delete it, it's still there and the only way to get rid of it from showing up is to refresh the desktop. Resetting "folders" does nothing for a "file".
