Items do not show as deleted until I manually refresh

When I delete an item from a folder, it still shows up in the folder until I manually refresh it with F5

Example:

Item in folder:



Deleting item:



The folder after the item has been deleted, until I press F5 to refresh the folder:



Can anybody help me with this problem? It's getting to be quite annoying when trying to organize things.

Well, there doesn't seem to be a hotfix for this problem yet.

Here's the support article: Desktop items disappear after renaming them on Windows 7

Here's a possible solution:

2) Searched for occurrences of the word refresh and found this key: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{BDEADE7F-C265-11D0-BCED-00A0C90AB50F}\Instance
which contains three subkeys. One of them, curiously enough, is DontRefresh and it has a value of 1 (turned ON)

3) I then changed the value to 0 (turned OFF) and hit F5 to refresh and save the now changed registry.
In other words...

Backup your registry.
Open regedit (start > regedit > enter)
Search for "DontRefresh"
Modify DWORD Value to 0

The apparent causes for this are:
Having UAC Turned OFF
Having the folder/files in question being shared on a network.

None of my folders are shared on a network, but I DO have UAC turned down (but not off)

I will try turning UAC back to the default level and see if it fixes it.

EDIT: Turning UAC back to the default setting seems to have fixed it! Thanks!

EDIT 2: Never mind, it's still happening
