Cannot rename folder of file

Posted: 08-12-2008, 08:35 PM

Hi,

When trying rernaming a folder using exporer (right-click) an error
appears: file or folder does not exist.
* I'm using vista ultimate
* having sufficient (administrator) rights
* It doesn't matter if UAC is on or off
* registeritem HK-Software-Microsoft-Windows-Explorer-Folderdescriptons
has about 90 lines (not emty) so:
- Microsoft-fix for KB938979 does not work (tried several times)
- New-folder-fix does not work (tried several times)

Who can fix this problem, which is getting very annoying???

How are you finding this non-existent file? If it is in the search window,
then it really does not exist, and the search index has just not caught up
with that yet. Give it a few days, and it won't be there any longer, as long
as you have not disabled indexing.
