Can't move folders after XP to Windows 7 upgrade

I have done tons of these upgrades but this one had me baffled, its from XP Pro to Windows 7 Pro using Vista Business as a bridge, all x32.
After the upgrade, all seem working except I can't move folders, if I choose CUT and then try to paste to a different folder, the PASTE option is not avaiable, if I try to drag the folder, it will show the no entry sign (circle with a line at 45' in red).
I have tried DisableThumbsDBOnNetworkFolders but this didn't help.
All folders are set with ReadOnly OFF, not sure what else I can try on this.

Hi.

This happens on any new folder you create? Like: Create folder 1, create a new text document in folder 1, create folder 2, copy that textfile using CTRL+C and paste to f.2 will not be available?

I just tried to test the folders, error 512 if I try to create new folders, even if I create a new user, I still get the same problem. Have reset the users permissions already.

Sometimes, upgrades do no work. Sometimes, you repeat the upgrade and it works...
I recommend to run a repair installation of win7, also known as inplace upgrade.
