windows do not automatically refresh

My XP Pro windows do not automatically refresh. If I delete or
copy a file, I need to go to view/refresh to see the change. The
change does not automatically show up. Is there something I can
set to make the windows automatically refresh themselves?

Did any of your previous versions of Windows automatically refresh??

Huh? Of course. If I delete a file, it disappears. If I copy a
file, it appears. I don't need to do a "view/refresh" in order to
see the change, except on this XP Pro.
