this is a bizarre problem - all of a sudden any activity on my xp pro desktop has to be manually refreshed in order to be visible!! I can place a file there but it won't show uintil i rict click and refresh - any ideas or solutions any one?
please this is really annoying me - anyone else having the same problem?
Open Notepad ..Copy And Paste The Following Code And Save as "fix.reg" .. After Saving right Click on Fix.reg and Choose Merge
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
The only solution for this issue was to install a second hard drive, format it from the old XP installation, swap them physically, set up the bios and start the whole sorry business from the beginning. Installing windows XP, Service Pack1a, Service Pack 3, and then doing the update from the wiondows update site.
None of the assistance from here or anywhere else had any effect whatsoever.
(Although all attempts at assistance were appreciated)
Sorry to hear you had such problems! I figured out a way to solve the problem with slightly less hassle, I created a new user account on XP. Still a pain, but not as bad as re-formatting my HD and re-installing windows from scratch.
