No matter where I try to create a folder, it just doesn't do it.  No error, no nothing.  Any ideas?  My computer has been scanned and cleaned of all viruses, malware, spyware....everything.

Any help would be appreciated!

My brother just had this exact problem.    I sent him this,

and it solved the issue.


We're seeing this more often.   This is the 3rd time i've answered this in the last week.
