Attempting to move files around ends in abysmal failure.

Recently, when I've tried to click+drag a file around to move it into another folder or some such, it won't move. It will just act like nothing happened. I have also tried right click+dragging it and copying+pasting it, but the files just won't move.

However, I can still copy and move files around using the command prompt. It is just trying to click and drag that doesn't work. Is there any way to solve this?

Log on with admin rights, go to start-run- and type (without the qoutes) "sfc /scannow" and enter.

This might also depend on a virus: update your Antivirus program and perform a full system scan. Try also with Stinger http://vil.nai.com/vil/stinger/.
After that, be sure that the issue is not malware related using Spybot and AD-Aware (suggested for example here http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web/Browser_Issues/Q_20975384.html)
Hope it helps.

we had similar problem on one machine... where it's cut copy function won't work... but it would start working after rebot...this definitely is a issue with... virus or spyware...we just ran the updated antivirus full scan.. and then sypware removal kits and reboot... it solved the problem...
