Win7 Folder rename/create issues

I am having a weird issue with renaming folders on Win7 (32 bit, SP1.)

If I try to just create a folder in explorer, the "New folder" appears highlighted as expected. When I type a name (say "fold_test") and press enter, it complains popping up a window with a 'try again' button. At that point, if I open a command prompt and do a dir, I see a folder called "New folder". When I go back and click the try again button, all is OK. The new folder called fold_test shows in explorer, and also the command prompt.

If I rename a folder in explorer, it does the popup and try again thing, but clicking try again makes it work.

If I do a MD in the command prompt, all seems OK.

If I do a ren in the command prompt, all seems OK.

When I attempt to move a folder (and it's contents) from one place to another using explorer, a window popups up telling me Windows cannot find the folder in the source location, and there is a try again button.

If I look in command prompt before dismissing the popup, the folder is there still in the source, going back and clicking "Try again" all is OK after that. (the folder is gone from source, shows in dest, and command prompt reflects the change properly.)

Moving the folder in the command prompt works without flaw.

This happens regardless if the drives are the same local drive, different local drives, local to network, or network to network.

Has anyone run across this before?

Thanks, Mark.
