every time i try to rename a folder ,a message "folder does not exist" comes up.
i posted the same problem a few months back
i tried the different methods i was directed to follow through this website ,but i have failed in doing so
what actually intrigues me is as to how come i have so many groups in my pc

this is how i came to know
i right clicked new folder,went to properties,then security where i have three groups
named system,
administrator ,
and third has my name gulalai.
all of these have full permissions.i dont know if its ok to have 3 groups,secondly whats the need of having so many
why cant i just run my laptop as administrator.
and last but not the least how can i sort out this problem of renaming my folders.

the specifications of my laptop are
sony vaio
genuine Intel ® cpu 1.60GHz
1014 MB
32 bit operating system
window edition:window vista ultimate

I have the same amount of groups, that's normal

why cant i just run my laptop as administrator..

This is probably why you cannot do anything with the folder
Try creating a new account with administrator privileges
