Since I've upgrade to windows 7, somehow, I got lazy to clean-up my folders because of this stupid bugs.
Deleting and browsing things in my hard drive just become somewhat more difficult.

After much research and looking around,
I'm recommending XYplorer to replace that crappy explorer that comes with windows 7.

Is it so hard for them to make a simple software that works? something like XYplorer?

move your focus to the next folder after you delete something (not to the root folder).
