Make sure you're logged in as an administrator, and try again. Make sure
you've got permissions to edit the file/folder.

Where on the drive are you trying to rename the folder, drive root,
Documents folder, desktop? What type of account is this, Administrator or
Limited User? I have created a new folder in the locations I specified and
they work just fine.

If you are viewing or editing files from within the folder, you can't rename
it. For example, I was reviewing a Word document from within the folder I
created, but I could rename the folder because it was in use by Microsoft
Word. My recommendation would be clean out your temp directory.
