Deleted Files still show in Windows 7 Explorer...a Fix

If you delete a file with the delete key on the keyboard and they still show in the folder in Windows Explorer. When you press delete again it says file not found.
Try arranging the file names alphabetically.
This works sometimes


One of the most successful solutions to this problems (although it doesn't help all the time) is to turn on the Windows desktop refresh feature. To do this, go to the Registry
"HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{BDEADE7F-C265-11D0-BCED-00A0C90AB50F}\Instance", look out for a DWORD value called "DontRefresh" which is set to "1" (on). Change the value to "0" (off). This re-enables the refresh. Note that the CLSID given above may depend on your machine. The easiest solution if you can't find the key is to just go to "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID", hit "F3" and do a search for "DontRefresh
