The issue is KB2454826. I installed each of the recent updates one at a time and the problem always starts after installing KB2454826. I did the fix recommended by stephglo and it worked. Thanks.

Folder Size for Windows (freeware) http://lib.giveawayoftheday.com/Folder_Size_For_Windows_41320/ is an add-on that displays the size of a folder. Targeted for Windows 2000 and XP, Folder Size adds a 'Folder Size' field to Windows Explorer that allows the user to visualize in real time what the size of his folders is. Similar to the File Size field, this new field makes working with files and folders a whole lot easier. People who constantly add, duplicate, copy, paste, delete, and manage files know how much of a nuisance it can become to continually have to go to the properties of a folder to know the size of a folder. This process can take up to minutes on slow computers. With Folder Size for Windows, the user can all together forget about this. Size is displayed (by default) in the second column in Windows Explorer, and users can see it in real-time. The application will constantly scan for changes in the users' file directory to display those changes in size in the Folder Size field. However, the program will not use all your resources for this. Moreover, when Folder Size for Windows detects that the disk is reading or writing heavily for other applications, it will give up those resources so that the other applications can have priority over disk usage. Folder Size for Windows does not prompt the user to start a scan; it simply scans in the background to make sure that all readings are up to date. This great application is free of charge and comes in really handy for anyone who needs to manage files and folders and know the sizes of them all. « less Review licensed from Publisher description Folder Size for Windows adds a new column to the Details view in Windows Explorer. The new column shows not only the size of files, but also the size of folders. It keeps track of which folders you view, and scans them in the background so you can see complete size of all files within the folder. It's very useful for cleaning up your disk. Once you get used to having that information available, a directory listing simply looks incomplete without it!
Folder Size **** (freeware) http://lib.giveawayoftheday.com/Folder_Size_135869/ Finding out which files and folders consume the most of your disk space in a manual manner, without the use of specialized tools, can be a pretty difficult task. To avoid having to deal with such troublesome situations, programs like Folder Size have been created. Folder Size will display in a clear manner what files and folders from your drives are the largest. In order to accomplish this, Folder Size shows the scanned files and folders as elements of bar charts and pie charts, sorted by size. This will make it easy for you to quickly find out which files are the bulkiest from a folder or what folder takes the most from a drive, even if these files or folders were hidden underneath many other directories and subdirectories and you wouldn’t have otherwise had any chance of finding them. What I like most about this program is the fact that it can scan entire hard drives on a pretty high speed, that is in just a few minutes. Handy additional features such as support for drag and drop or for command line mode are also provided. Another nice feature is the possibility of exporting the scan results to CSV or XML files and the chart image to JPEG files. Unfortunately, here comes the part that I must criticize. Even though it is presented and advertised as free, I have discovered that Folder Size actually comes with some limitations. For example, in order to export the reports containing the file sizes, you have to purchase a commercial version. The file filters are another aspect that you can benefit of only if you obtain a paid version of this tool. Maybe it was just an unintentional mistake, but I clearly don’t appreciate this kind of license information gaps that could deceive the users. Anyway, Folder Size is a nice tool that accomplishes its purpose: it makes it easy for anyone to discover which files and folders are the largest on their drives. Review licensed from Publisher description This is a free aplication that takes a close look at your hard drive giving plenty of information on how its space is managed and on relative sizes of folders. It can be used on all types of storage devices: HDD, CDROM, USB drives, etc. Once the program is launched, two scan options are offered: scanning a drive or a folder using the menu, and a drag and drop scan. After the scan (which you can pause the scan if you wish), the results can be analyzed in the bottom right corner by means of a pie chart or a bar chart, both of which can be animated. Another way to view the results is using a list, which is generated after the scan and which is shown in middle of the window. Informations that it displays includes folder name, folder size, its percentage in relation to the parent folder size, files count inside the folder, subfolders count, time of creation; and all these items can be used as criteria for sorting. Using the list, you can also view the properties of a folder, or if you want, you can remove it from the list or delete it altogether.
A+ Folder Locker Free Edition **** (freeware) http://lib.giveawayoftheday.com/A_Folder_Locker_Free_Edition_2557575/http://lib.giveawayoftheday.com/A_Folder_Locker_Free_Edition_2557575/ is an application which is used for encrypting and hiding files and folders. It is designed for those who want to keep documents stored on their computer away from peeping eyes. This program has a nice and relaxing interface. The toolbar is simple and quite easy to use. You will notice that it is not placed in the usual spot, but on the right side of the window. On the main page you find information about the locker's condition. The option module provides general settings with reference to starting the app and protecting files. There are also indications about adding, editing and removing categories, as well as regarding stealth. The main menu is placed on the left side of the interface and offers the proper means to create a new locker or manage the already existing ones. If you want to design a new locker all you are supposed to do is set its name, the appropriate category, location and size. The next step is to set the compression level. The security settings will offer you the possibility to select the encryption method and to set a password. You can enable or not the anti-hacking protection. After creating the locker, you will notice that, regardless the settings, it is saved as a separate partition. One of the features that I want to emphasize is the fact that you can hide a file inside another file. A document hidden this way is harder to be found by anyone. Another relevant function is the file shredder which is meant to delete documents without any possibility to recover them. Thus, neither you, but most important, nor other people could ever find them again. I think that A+ Folder Locker is a very useful application, especially for those who have important files on their computers and secrets that should not be known by others. It is a tool that helps you keep your privacy safe. Review licensed from Publisher description With A+ Folder Locker, you can store files, folders, drives, and even complete software programs in special data storage "lockers". Not only do these lockers keep the names of the files and folders you store in them from being viewed, but also the robust level of security of the lockers make them virtually impossible to break into. A+ Folder Locker also includes a variety of other high-level security features that you can use to protect the information on your computer. Features like Disguise & Hide, which lets you hide files and folders inside photos and other images on your computer. There's also a pattern password that can be used in lieu of regular text passwords, an elusive stealth mode that allows you to run A+ Folder Locker on your computer without anyone knowing and much more!
