XP Explorer Window Refresh problem

By gsubra ·
File List in the Windows Explorer Folder Is Not Refreshed After You Create, Move, or Delete Files..I tried the following:**

And, updating the graphics card driver. Runnind XP SP2. The problem seems to be random now but still happening. Every time I create, delete or rename files/folders, I have to refresh the window to see the changes. Thoughts?

have you tried adjusting (turning off) the accelleration for the graphics card. you could diddle with that from device manager. what is the graphics card btw?
or just try slamming it with changing the Windows Performance settings to 'optimise for speed' which will cut out all the fancy graphics. see if that affects it...
seems to be random? which folders are affected i wonder...this puter is on a network?

Have you tried running sfc /scannow from the Run box? Also, have you run a registry checker? Try these and see if they help.

Good luck

Had this problem, and surfed my way here in search of a solution.

Visited the link at top to kbid=8342**, and only did this portion of the suggestions:

Follow these steps:
0.5 RUN
0.7 regedit
0.9 Export (to back up the registry)
1. Locate and then click the following key in the registry:
2. On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click DWORD Value.
3. Type NoSimpleNetIDList, and then press ENTER.
4. On the Edit menu, click Modify.
5. Type 1, and then click OK.

For me, it worked fine. No issues. The file explorer windows now update immediately upon any file actions. Good stuph!
