Problem renaming files or simply selecting them in Windows 7

Speaking in silver

Hi, I found a very annoying bug in Windows 7.
Hope someone can help me here :)

- Every day I download multi-part files like songs, movies, etc. These files
appear in their folders as Song.mp3.01-31, then Song.mp3.01-32, etc. while
being downloaded, until they are completed and finally turn to song.mp3.

- While downloading these files, Windows 7 refreshes their names from time
to time, without any apparent parttern for this delay. Sometimes 50 new
parts are downloaded but names are not refreshed, other times every single
part downloaded is refreshed. Of course, pressing F5 causes instant refresh,
always.

- The problem is: When I try to rename a file inside that folder (not the
one that is being downloaded, but any other), the job is impossible.

- I place the cursor on a character, in order to rename the file, but
immediatly the whole filename is selected (in blue), so anything I write
overwrites the pre-existing filename, instead of being added to the
original.

- The same damn thing occurs when I try to select some files from that
folder (for instance, in order to move them): Every second or so the screen
is refreshed and I lose my selection, so I must select them again until I
catch the good wave...

The conclusion is I have to be as quick as a wink to be able to rename or
move files and I don't know hot to fix this. The same problem happened in XP
but not in Vista, and this is the reason why I am one of the few happy users
of Vista.

Windows 7 seems back to the old mistakes.
Or is it me?

The same happens when downloading non-multipart files. I downloaded like
5000 pics to a folder today and it was impossible to work inside that folder
meanwhile. No renaming files or subfolders, no selecting, no nothing
:-(((((((

Thank you for any comment or help on this

keys to move to the letter you which to delete etc Simples.
