Force status refresh

This is a workaround for a bug in Explorer for Windows 7. Sometimes when a new Explorer window is opened the status bar is blank. Check this option to enable the workaround

If you set the state to 'Locked to this value', the setting will be locked to the specified value for all users.

If you set the state to 'Locked to default', the setting will be locked to the default value for all users. The specified value is ignored.

If you set the state to 'Unlocked', the default value for the setting will be changed to the specified value. Individual users can override the setting.
