    Win7-64 Home Premium OEM on a little desktop system at my home.

    When I rename file XXX, I get the message:

    Item Not Found. XXX is no longer located in c:\...
    Verify location and try again. Date created: xx-xx-xxxx

    When I click "Try Again" the rename looks complete. But it causes numerous other problems.

    This is evidently a known problem, possibly connected to KB980408, which I haven't even managed to find on my system.

    I checked attributes on the folder, did a "take ownership", etc. UAC has been turned off for months.

    I haven't been able to positively track it down, focus on the exact problem and solution. I need to fix it ASAP.

    Any help with this would be much appreciated. Someone has nailed it down?

    Thx,
    P

    Try turning UAC back on and see if that helps.
