    Can't rename or move folders


    Hello,

    After installing KB3124200 & KB3116900 updates, I'm no longer able to rename or move folders. When I try, it gives the error "Can't find the specified file".

    I have done sfc /scannow but it didn't help. Also, I have run default file associations registry files from here, but it didn't help either.

    I'm going nuts, is there anything else I can do?

    Thanks

    I remembered that I had disabled Libraries via a registry file. I re enabled Libraries and voila, now I can rename and move folders. :)
