So basically, whenever I try and delete or move a file (I'm assuming the deleting problem is rooted in the moving problem, since deletion is just moving to the recylcing bin), that progress bar either fills up the entire way and doesn't go, or it just keeps calculating how long it will take or w/e, and that light green bar that hyperactively keeps moving, well, keeps moving and never ends. I have to restart explorer.exe from the task manager, and then when I go back it's all done. So I can delete and move files, but that progress bar just never leaves.

When I rename a file, the window I do it in locks up. So if it is desktop, the desktop locks up. If it is my personal folder, the personal folder locks up. Like moving/deleting, I have to restart explorer.exe.

I downloaded Unlocker, and it told me none of my files are locked up. I can delete stuff with it just fine, but that's because it deletes it off the face of the earth, and not move it to the recycling bin. The same problem happens when I move it though, but when I rename a file using it, the moving problem occurs (bar fills up, and just stops).

This is a huge problem, because it means I can't delete files using non-explorer programs (like mediamonkey), and it also means that everytime someone sends me something through MSN, my MSN locks up because it tries to move the file. Also, when I install some things, it can't fully install because it can either not delete a file, or it can't move it.

So yeah, thanks.

P.S. Yes, I have restarted.
