Folder Renaming Always has to "Try Again"

Windows 7 Business x64, updates till 5/9/2010.

Every time I try to rename a folder I get the error message titled "Item not Found" and the text inside says: "Could not find this item This is no longer located in <Folder Directory>. Verify the item's location and try again."

If I click try again, (only have to once), it renames the folder, but if I click cancel, it doesn't rename the file. This wasn't a big deal until recently it has started to get annoying. Any body know what is wrong??

Here is an image of the error message

And here is a video of the error happening:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W5Z9SAljDi0

Thanks,
DT

Hi.

Disable the UAC and try again.

UAC is already off. An interesting factoid is that this doesn't happen when renaming individual files. Also, moving folders causes this same behavior (IE I have to click "Try again" for every folder I moved.

I might be clutching at straws here, but try running scandisk, sfc, the defrag and see if that makes a difference.

Perhaps also try with any download managers off and your Antivirus always on protection off.

Defrag'd and turned everything off, still having the problem. It also has the same problem when I rename folders on my networked drives.

These people that do not read and blindly suggest things are really annoying.
I never had this problem - until a few weeks ago. Now several of my Win7 machines ALL have it.

This was caused by a MS update, and who knows when it will be fixed.

MS really needs to get their customer support act together.
My company has reported it to MS - but so far no fix.

Dont worry the problem is error 1606

try doing this:

1. Browse to the registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList
2. Right click ProfileList and choose New>Expandable String Value
3. Name the new key as Public
4. Double click on it and set the value to %SystemDrive%\Users\Public

Still dont working? try downloading this:

after you downloaded it will ask you to reboot your pc

Click Yes and thats all!
