Same issue in XP - most often in media files

I've had the same issue in XP on multiple computers and multiple installs for years. Most often occurs on media folders. For me, once the error occurs, it's usually the same folder that's the culprit. Do a clean reinstall and I'm fine again...until I move my data back over. I have started to suspect there is something attached to my data not being caught by anti-virus programs that effects the system. But I have no idea how to find the culprit file without trial and error each folder and that would take a life time.

Anyone else ever come up with a solution??

Have to manually refresh after deleting the file in Library, which is sorting by "Date Modified".
To recur the problem: (take the【Documents】of the Library for example)
First, make sure that your files and folders in 【Documents】 are sorting by "Date Modified".
Second, make sure that your files and folders are having the amount that you have to use the scroll wheel of your mouse or use the scroll bar to view them all.
Third, make sure that your library has never done any other individual settings.
Then, we go as follows to see the problem:
Create a new file in 【Documents】. Close the 【Documents】 window. Then please Re-open 【Documents】. Here, please make sure that your 【Documents】 is still sorting by "Date Modified". Now let's delete the file you have just created. The problem comes out.
