Windows 7 does not refresh folder views

I've got the following problem:
Windows 7 does not refresh automatically the folder view (until I manually refresh by pressing F5) after the following file operations:
- Create/delete/rename/move files or folders

Windows 7 Professional final release, international English version. No upgrade, clean install.

It seems to me it's a delay in my case: if I wait for approximately 30 secs, the refresh is done automatically. There are shared folders on the volumes.

I've done the followings:
- deleted IconCache - did not help
- reset folder views - did not help
- turned off file sharing and network discovery - did not help
- made a clean boot - did not help
- ran sfc - did not found any violations
- created new user account - did not help
- updated the BIOS to the latest version - did not help
- updated the VGA driver to the latest version - did not help
- turned off file indexing - did not help
- ran Windows 7 in Safe Mode (without Networking): it seems the issue does not occur

I could be satisfied with Windows 7 but this issue is terribly annoying cause I work with a lot of files day by day.

Could anybody help me?

Hello,

Welcome to Microsoft answers forum for Windows Vista Community!

What happens when you try to boot in safe mode?

To start your computer in safe mode, you can refer the below link: 

http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Windows/en-US/help/323ef48f-7b93-4079-a48a-5c58eec904a11033.mspx

I would suggest you to place the computer in a clean boot state and check if the issue resolved:
 
1. Log on to the computer by using an account that has administrator rights.
2. Click Start, type msconfig.exe in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER to start the System Configuration Utility. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.
3. On the General tab, click Selective Startup, and then click to clear the Load startup items check box. (The Use Original Boot.ini check box is unavailable.)
4. On the Services tab, click to select the Hide all Microsoft services check box, and then click Disable all.
5. Click OK, and then click Restart.
6. Check if you still have the issue.

Reset the computer to start as usual After you have finished troubleshooting, follow these steps to reset the computer to start as usual:

a.             Click Start , type msconfig.exe in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.

  1.  If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.
  2. On the General tab, click the Normal Startup option, and then click OK.
  3. When you are prompted to restart the computer, click Restart.

e.     If this does not help, try to run a SFC scan. To do a SFC scan follow the steps below:
 
Use system file checker tool which is also called SFC scan.
System File Checker (SFC) checks that all Vista system files are where they should be as they were by default and not corrupted, changed, or damaged.
 
1. Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and  select Run as Administrator.
2. Click Continue or supply Administrator credentials if prompted.
3. In the Command Prompt window type the following, and press Enter:
   sfc /scannow
 
4. You should see the following on-screen messages:
    Beginning the system scan. This process will take some time.
    Beginning verification phase of system scan.
    Verification % complete.
5. Once the scan has completed, test to see whether the issue that you are experiencing is resolved or not.
