Windows Explorer Status Bar Text

Does anyone know how I can changed the status bar for a specific drive of file in Windows XP (SP2)?

I have a folder that shows, in the status bar, a random line of text that is not related to the name of the folder.

Is just one folder affected?

  kentylad 19:40 02 May 2006

Yes just the one folder. There are two (including the folder in question) folders at this level.

I have tried renaming the folder but it changed nothing.

I can only guess that the folder's 'footprint' is corrupted. Can you copy it to somewhere else and delete the original?

This folder was just copied from another location.....

OK, restart the computer.

  kentylad 20:30 02 May 2006

Still no change...

  Graham ® 20:33 02 May 2006

My next guess is a virus.
