Windows 7: Windows Explorer doesn't update view when moving or deleting files

Windows Explorer doesn't update view when moving or deleting files

This behavior just started within the past week or so. When I delete or move files in Windows Explorer, the files just stay in the right-hand pane. They DO get deleted or moved, but I have to hit F5 to refresh the view.

This never happened before, until about a week ago.

Any help?

Thanks in advance,
Ken

Hi Ken, Have you added any programs, or did updates just prior to the start of your problem?

Of course, Windows is always doing updates, so the answer to your question is probably yes, but I'm not sure exactly when the problem first manifested.

I did install several programs in the past few weeks. One is Safari, also a desktop utility called "Fences." I will try uninstalling these programs and see if the problem goes away.

If not, I make backup images every day that I could restore, going back about a week, then further back a day or two at a time earlier until the problem doesn't show up.

Thanks for the welcome, but I've been a member for several months, but don't post unless something really stumps me. When I first upgraded from XP to Win 7, I posted something every day or two for a week or two.

And thanks for your response.
