Windows Explorer doesn't update and programs won't open RRS feed

  • Question

  • Ever since Windows SP1 update everything has been messed up.  Explorer no longer refreshes when you move files or rename etc... (no matter how you do it) you have to refresh or switch to another folder and then go back to see the changes.  

    Also a number of programs now only inconsistently work.  I tried to roll back the SP1 update - which basically made no improvement.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks,

    David

  • Hi,

    Please boot the computer in Clean Boot mode to eliminate the 3rd party software causes.

    You may also use ShellExView to disable 3rd party plug-ins in Explorer process.
