Hello,

I've got a user that has done something to their explorer.

When he creates a new folder, he has to hit refresh to be able to see it.

When he renames a file/folder after he hits enter it goes back to the old filename, if he hits refresh the new name shows up.

You might try SFC SCANNOW to start with.

You may also try a Repair.

Neither of these actions should take that long and may correct the issue.
I've also corrected Exlporer issues by reinstalling Internet Explorer. They are tied together.
