Thanks cass, but whatever is preventing me from creating a NEW FOLDER blocked that suggestion as well ... frown

It is getting late now and I have an early trip to NY tomorrow ... I won't be able to try the second link until Monday ...

I really appreciate all the suggestions, guys ...

UAC, or User Account Control has not much to do with admin rights...

There has been issues where a user has turned UAC off totally that has caused the issue you are having. If off, turn it back on to the default (2nd bar from the top) and then restart. This can sometimes fix this.

It was a well known issue in W XP (and early Vista), and Microsoft released a Hotfix for it...but it was supposed to be a non-issue in W7 and certainly not in 8.

As far as try again....open Windows Explorer right click in any white space in the right pane and create a new folder. Then at the top of the page select the View tab scroll to refresh and click it, if the new folder does not appear.

If the View tab is not there, at the top of the Explorer page under Organize, select Layout - Menu Bar.

Hi Tony

The problem is known, (Although seldom does it occur) however if you follow the 2nd link that Cass has provided it should fix the problem.
NOTE: Print the instructions out and follow them to the letter. (Most importantly backup the registry)
You can undo the System Restore you did before you perform the repair if you wish.

If problem still persists, post again with the results

Bill

Macs don't freeze, crash or get viruses.
(well, HARDLY ever .... stupid dangerous web threats are still out there, but the real hackers don't have time to concentrate on sabotaging macs, because it's a smaller percent of the population.
