Hello geeks!

This happens in just about every folder/file in which I have tried to change anything. Even though the pop-up appears, the changes take place (renaming a folder, moving files etc.)

I can not remember how this started. In other parts of the internet people have similar issues, and "taking ownership" would fix that. This is not the case for me.

Im not sure what you mean, is it a case of the name changes randomly or that the Data no longer exists anywhere on your system?

Found a solution, used it, rebooted computer and now i lost the link...

It works now.
I remember the solution being something about deleting some registry entries from the Service Pack 1 for Windows 7.

<<<---:::EDIT:::--->>>

is the download link where i downloaded the registry tweaks.

Edit by mod. Direct download links are strictly forbidden on the forum. Link removed.

In case anyone has the same problem and want a solution without download links, i copied the contents of the .reg file.

Add this to a text document and name it anything, just make sure it has the ".reg" extension.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FolderDescriptions\{2112AB0A-C86A-4ffe-A368-0DE96E47012E}]
