Files don't disappear once deleted (??!!??)

by iknowyouare / February 26, 2010 10:47 AM PST

Hello,
I'm running a fairly new HP p6240f/Intel Core II Quad/2.50 Ghz/64bit with Windows 7 Home Premium. I've got a really strange issue.

When I delete a file from either the desktop or a windows explorer window the file "appears" to not go away, but if I double click I get an error that the file cannot be found. If I right click and then click on "Refresh", THEN it disappears.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Explorer refresh

Explorer is not automatically refreshing itself, which it should. I don't know if there is an easy way to set the refresh, but see

this requires a Registry edit.

You should also search the web for other solutions.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
