Windows desktop will not refresh automat

By jerantm ·
Hello, still looking for an answer here. This is a tough problem. If I unzip or download files to the desktop, they don't appear unless I hit F5 and manually refresh the view. Sometimes I even have to open File Explorer and close it then hit F5 to refresh. The PC has a Creative Labs TNT 2 Ultra video card. Even after a fresh format and reinstall of Windows 98 SE the problem persists. Please help. I've looked everywhere and tried everything I could think of!

Sorry, it's not the monitor refresh that is giving me the problem.

This is not an answer, but a request for more info. Are you logging in just as yourself, and if so do other people get it on your machine? Do you use roaming profiles, if so have you tried another machine and do you get the same??
I think the Video card is a herring. If it was a hardware/driver issue then hitting F5 would not work either. It is not as if the screen can't update it just isn't doing it automatically. I'd try backing up your registry (where all display settings are) and replace it from a machine you know works well. Then see if it looks good.

Thanks, but there's only 1 profile on the machine.

Creative just released newe drivers for that card on 5/31/2000. You might download those to see if that helps!
