Windows 7: Folder automatically closes after 5-10 minutes

Folder automatically closes after 5-10 minutes

This has been so frustrating. When I open a folder (usually a desktop folder) after maybe 5-10 minutes the desktop flashs (icons reload) and the folder closes without warning. Very annoying having to reopen time after time while I'm working with the contents in the folder. I have tried virus scans, reset folder options and several other 'suggestions' without any success. Everything else works fine i.e. browser and programs. This has been going on for about 2 weeks. Any ideas anyone?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks Lemur. Sophos didn't find anything but Malewarebytes found several problems. Fixed everything and nice to have my computer back. Thanks again for your help.

Hi, I was wondering if it's possible when customizing folder icons, that when creating a new folder in the sub-directory that it would copy the icon of the Master folder icon? instead of always having to edit the new folder's icon. Thanks.
