    Facing problem in renaming the folder in Windows Vista

    I have some folders in Windows Vista and I want to rename some on them. When I renamed them and saw them again, they are in the old name, but not with the new name. I need to get it resolved. What might be the problem? Please, help me!

    Re: Facing problem in renaming the folder in Windows Vista

    Renaming a folder is not that tough, except the corruption or virus infedtion that may hinder the process.

    To solve the issue, try the following methods.

    1. boot in safe mode, press F8 during the beginning of the booting, once that is done go to desktop and rename
    the folder.
    2. Click Start, in the search box type cmd and press enter, Right click on the command prompt and select RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR and press enter. type sfc/scannow and let system file scanner find and fix problems. once finished , try to rename the folder.
    3. Again use the same method to RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR, in the command prompt type chkdsk/f to scan and fix errors in the disk. Again try to rename after chkdsk finishes its task.
    4. Use the Windows installer disk and bootfrom it, then Use Repair Windows option to fix the windows installationissue. After finishing try to rename.

    The methods are bound to succeed, any one of them. Try them one by one.

    You might be facing this problem because:-

    -The folder might be opened in some other application or editor.

    -Virus may have affected your system.

    -You might not have the permission to access the folder.

    The solution to your problem is:-

    -Right click on the folder.

    -Select the Run as Administrator option.

    -Make sure the folder is not in protected mode.

    -Close all the applications running in your system.

    -Make sure the folder is not opened in any other editor or apps.

    -Run an antivirus scan in your system.

    -Restart the system.

    Your problem will be solved.

    so want to rename the folder, but system stops you to do this, here is the solution to solve your problem.

    go to control panel.
    open programs and features.
    On the left side of the window you can notice "view installed updates"
    Click on it, and search for
    Windows6.0-KB938194-x86 Windows6.0-KB938979-x86


    Now uninstall both these updates and try to rename the folder.

    If it doesn't work, Create a new admin account and log in to the new account
    Now delete the original admin account. Now you have only one new admin account and try to rename the folder from this account

    happy to assist you

    There may 3 reasons for the problem you are facing:-

    ><Virus may have affected.

    ><The folder open through any other editor or software.

    Try the following to resolve your problem:-

    >>Restart your computer.

    >>Virus scan.

    >>Run the folder as Administration option.

    But also check that the folder does not open.
