    *** HELP! ***
    This is becoming almost a daily problem. I try to rename a folder, sometimes a new folder, and it just hangs and will not accept the new name - the characters I type do not appear in the box. The only way out is to close the Explorer window, wait a few seconds for the PC to recover itself, and then try again. On rare occasions it happens 2 or 3 times in a row.
    Any ideas anybody? I don't think I'm the only person this has happened to.
    Running latest Win 10 64-bit, 8 CPUs, 16Gb memory.

    You may have to restart the computer after you apply the hotfix.
