Hi folks. I noticed this problem first on my machine (at work) which is running XP SP2. The problem was later described to me by another user here who is running Windows 98. When copying or moving files or folders to a new location, or creating new documents in a folder - they are not visible until the folder is refreshed (she would close and reopen, I just hit f5). A reboot solves the problem temporarily but it returns eventually. She described the problem that she is having and it is exactly what is happening on my machine to a T. Two different OS so I have run several checks using updated AVG and several spyware programs on both machines and found nothing. These docs and folders should be immediately visible. It's not hard to refresh but the fact that they are not showing up right away makes me think there could be something wrong.....
