    can't change desktop icon names

    Whenever I try to change the name of desktop icons, it asks for admin rights (I have them, only user on Windows, admin), I give it and then the whole computer just hangs until I restart explorer.exe from Task Manager.
    Anyone else having the same problem? Any solution or workaround?

Icon at top left of desktop
