I have had this problem for a while but I have just ignored, but now that I am moving around a lot of files it is getting very annoying.

The problem: I am running windows vista 32 bit on a dell inspirion 531. When I try to move or delete files in windows explorer the screen that pops up to show the progress freezes. The file is moved or deleted successfully but the pop up remains. I can then cancel the pop up but the cancel screen also remains. I have to open up task manager to close windows explorer. This problem happens in spurts, sometimes all files do this and sometimes no files do this but it is always all of them or none of them.

This problem first presented itself a couple of months ago so I have no idea what the last piece of software was installed.
I believe I am up to date on all windows updates, including service pack 1, this problem came before service pack 1 was installed.
Is this a common problem with Vista?
I will be happy to provide anymore information that is needed.
thanks in advance for all of the help.
