Hi folks
I know this sounds crazy but when I use Windows Explorer it keeps refreshing the folders on its own, every second. (well thats what it appears to be doing anyway)Its impossible to view the contents of any folders as a result.
I'm using XP Pro with serrvice pack 2 installed.
Any ideas.
Cheers

Have you checked for the possibility of viruses & ad/spyware? G

I know this may sound strange but make sure your graphics card has got the most up to date driver. I had a similar problem (albeit not so frquent or annoying) and when I updated my graphic driver the problem disappeared. Worth a go!
