Files don't disappear once deleted (??!!??)

I'm running a fairly new HP p6240f/Intel Core II Quad/2.50 Ghz/64bit with Windows 7 Home Premium. I've got a really strange issue.

When I delete a file from either the desktop or a windows explorer window the file "appears" to not go away, but if I double click I get an error that the file cannot be found. If I right click and then click on "Refresh", THEN it disappears.

Any ideas?
