Installing this update on Windows 7 X64 Will cause Folder Renaming Problems.

This exactly what happens.

Quote:
If I try to rename any folder in my system, I get "Could not find this item" with the choices "Try Again" and "Cancel". When I click "Try Again", it always succeeds. So - my system isn't crippled - but it is so totally annoying. I can even right-click on my desktop, and choose "New... Folder" and type in a name, and I get "Could not find this item". The interesting thing is that the item's name does change even before I click "Try Again".

If I have a folder named "Folder1" and I rename it to "Folder2", I get the error that "Folder1" Could not be found - which is actually true, as it is already renamed to "Folder2".
I ended up reinstalling my OS.

Problem solved, then I updated But before updating I created a system restore point.

Boom my problem recurred again.

So I uninstalled ALL updates. Rebooted. Did a system restore point that I created. Boom Problem gone.

So I googled New MS Update.

I came across this link here.
http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r241...-today-4272010
Hit CTRL + f, typed in rename, took me down to a description [KB980408] "7th post down".

I read it, instantly knew it was that one update.

So I am still at my restore system point, decide to install all updates except this new one"KB980408".

No problems + my system started up a alot faster with out it!

Be cautious and create a system restore point before installing MS Update.

I hope I may get the word out before this happens to another person, it will save a lot of time.

that is why you leave updates turned off...

(install SPs after they are tested for a good month)

Weird, I don't have that problem, and I rebooted this morning to install that exact update.

I haven't had Windows updates turned on in the longest time. I used to have BSoDs from bad updates every so often on Vista, and I'm not taking that chance with Windows 7.

The thing is updates don't affect everyone the same way. As I sad in my earlier post, I used to get BSoDs from certain updates under Vista, but obviously not everyone had the same crashes from the same updates as I did.

Installed yesterday, cannot replicate this issue... your system maybe?

I was worried for a bit when I found this as "installed" in my update history, however it hasn't affected my system as it has affected yours. I'll be on the lookout for such updates, though.

Yeah I just checked right now, everything is fine for me as well.

Edit: I see some people mentioning SP1, was this update indeed SP1? Or are the people who have it, getting it from the leaked version that got leaked a little while ago?
