I'm really starting to get annoyed at my system, any time I open a file in a folder, that folder gets opened and does not get released until I end-task explorer or restart my computer. For example, I have some folders on my desktop, I went in looking through the files in them then decided to delete the folders, I get "access is denied" on them. I use WhoLockMe to find out whats going on, and explorer has multiple handles to a directory open(the directory is the only thing opened, the files I was looking through were already released). This doesn't happen on my other computer when I completely recreate the circumstances. I also have the same software running on both computers, so it couldn't be software interfering. Anyone got any ideas as to what would cause this?

Maybe you could try the F5 key (refresh) with the folder pane at the left side all compacted to minimal. I don't know if it works, just a suggestion. I don't notice any problem here on my system.

FWIW: I use WinXP SP2.
