I have Windows XP Home SP2 on an HP Pavilion a1220n. I have been having a problem for quite some time now. I never had this problem until a virus forced me to use the HP Recovery tool; about 2 months ago. (This basically takes the PC all the way back to the day it came out of the box.) The problem: I am unable to see any changes I make in Windows Explorer without having to refresh the window after every task. Some examples are: I delete a folder, but the icon for the folder remains in the window. If I click the icon, I get the "Cannot find..." error message, so the folder did in fact delete. I must right-click empty space in the window and select "Refresh" to get the icon to disappear. (Closing and re-opening the window also works.) Working with tiled windows can be quite confusing, especially when dragging and dropping folders to move or copy them. I cannot tell which folders were moved/ copied without having to constantly refresh both windows in use after every operation. Any requests for further information, or additional details regarding my explanation will be gladly answered. Thank you to all who reply.
EDIT: Please disregard. The problem became so annoying, that I decided to get persistant. After about 3 hours of research, I found the solution.
