    KB980408 Fix (can't move/rename folders after WU)


    Some users experience issues with renaming folders or moving folders after a system reboot. This is most likely caused by a Windows Update and usually affects users on Windows 8 or 8.1

    Users who experience this error will get error messages such as "File or folder does not exist" when attempting to rename/move folders.

    Well, here is the solution. Download this .reg file and merge it with your registry. After a reboot, you will be able to rename and move folders again.
