Windows 7: Folder remains after delete, and Until site change in WE

Folder remains after delete, and Until site change in WE

Hi ,

When I delete a folder in WE , it continues to be displayed until I move to another folder-- The same holds true for a MOVE or COPY.

This just happened recently as I have been working with folders for years .

This is very time consuming and your help would really be appreciated.

My computer is w7-64 6g memory-- Thanks, Ralph

Hi Neorican,

Click start>run and type in cmd.

In the black command prompt type 'sfc /scannow' - It will check your system files for tampering.

Run a virus scan as well just in case.

This is a known issue in Win 7 that is yet to be addressed.

HI Dave and Fig 7,

Thank You for your replies---- I may have not made the problem clear , but I have found the solution-- I Right click on the folder and move the cursor to OPEN FOLDER LOCATION -- then delete or move or copy works perfectly. This applies to all the sub folders that apply to the folder.

Did I make this clear-- I do have a feeling that I did not express myself clearly.

Thanks again---- Ralph

No, the issue was clear. The folder's contents don't refresh after a move/copy, which is a known issue in Win 7. Sometimes it does it, sometimes it doesn't. It appears you've found a method where it does the refresh so I would stick with that.

Wallpaper remains stretched when I change it to tiled
I'd like my desktop wallpaper to be tiled but when I change it to tiled it doesn't tile it at the original size of the image, it stretches it to the same height as my screen resolution and then tiles it, which looks awful. Why is this?

Cant' change domain on https site
I am logged into a domain "ABC". I open the browser and navigate to an HTTPS site that requires a login. That site is using AD to validate logins and passwords. Problem is, when the browser prompts for username/password it does not accept a domain name. It keeps the ABC domain. Any ideas here?
