Try this if you have Windows XP. Open up notepad, and select "Save" or "Save As". In the dialog box that pops up, click the "Desktop" button on the side, or select the "Desktop" folder in the drop down combobox on the top. Now click on the "Create New Folder" toolbar button. It does absolutely nothing at all!. It only has this behavior when you are on the "Desktop" special shell folder. If you browse to your desktop starting from the root of the drive that it is on, it works fine, and creates new folders..

My question is, what other parts of windows do these drivers screw up?

I'm currently using 66.93 WHQL drivers with a 6800GT.

I've verified that with the drivers uninstalled, the problem is fixed. Also verified on a fresh XP install.

Eh, I meant to post in drivers forum. Says I don't have permission to delete it. Oh well.
