Default Windows Folder Refresh problem

Hi,

Whenever I unzip or unrar a file I need to hit F5 to refresh the folders and see the new folder. I'm sure Windows used to do this automatically. How can I get it back to normal? I have Windows XP home.

Cheers

I'm pretty sure you just have to do that yourself now, but there might be an option for it.

Try this:

AutoRefresh 1.01 is a utility that automatically refreshes a browser window at specified intervals. Most useful for sites that need frequent refreshing, like stock tickers, game updates, news sites, etc. Free from www.aboutlyrics.com/Software/Download/AutoRefresh.php
