Rename or Move Folder Problem

Finished building my computer, installed Windows 7 Pro 64 bit and moved all my data files. Worked great until I went on line. Next morning, I booted and my primary monitor on which I have a solid black desktop had these multi-shade red stripes from left to right. When I would move my cursor, it had a narrow multi red strip that would follow it around. Reset desktop to windows default which looked like it had sprayed pink splotches all over it. Second monitor stayed correct. Reversed monitor priority which would also reverse the issue so it was just affecting the primary monitor. After a couple hours I gave up and uninstalled all the updates and everything went back to normal except when I wanted to rename a folder or move one. I would get a message -"Could not find this item. This item is no longer located in C:\Whatever. Verify the location and try again." Lots of solutions for Vista but the registry files they referred to appeared to be good. Later I did find that if I clicked on retry a couple of times it would go ahead and rename the file. I did go back and install the deleted updates in bunches of 5 and did not create any issues but also did not resolve this issue

Is your primary monitor spoilted?
1.Try connect this monitor to other computer, check the result?

2. Perhaps, your primary monitor 's driver has problem during installation.
    Reinstall the monitor 's driver.

Monitor worked fine after uninstalling all updates. Works great after reinstalling the updates so the monitor issue is no longer a problem but the renaming issue is.

sounds like hard drive issues to me you should use a program like seatools to check the drive

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Hard drive issues? I hope not. Two brand new Vertex 3s! Will look into the best way to check these drives.

2. Restart the computer

VJ, you refer to clearing the entries listed in your attachment, do you mean delete those entries and if so, will reboot build new entries?

no, it won't rebuild.
backup your registry first, before any amendment.

It was caused by KB980408, download and run the registry fix provided. It is the same as what vichong514 suggested but in a simpler package. You will have to reboot or from taskmanager kill all explorer processes and then restart (run) explorer.  These registry entries will not be recreated. This was an emergency hotfix from microsoft.
