Why do I keep getting this? Never had this problem with XP or Vista. Whenever I try to move or delete something this stupid message pops up. The only thing that seems to fix it is waiting 5 minutes between file/folder moves and deletion.

There are some protected locations in Windows 7. Where are you working with these files? Are you using a limited user account? Are you using a foreign disk?

Usually transfering files from my Desktop (or a folder on my Desktop) to my external HDD. I have been logged in as Admin since I installed Windows 7. Other times when I delete a file or folder on my Desktop the file will instantly come back after it gets refreshed, but will be gone some minutes later.

If this disk was originally formatted on another computer (or possibly user) then you will get messages about it. It is because you are not the owner of that disk as far as Windows is concerned.

You also might want to check and make sure that you do not have some kind of write caching or delayed write enabled for those discs. The behavior you describe, at first not working, but working OK later even though you did nothing else to "fix" the problem made me think this might be your problem.
