Unable to create a new folder

I know that there is something that I'm completely missing here but can't seem to nail it down. When I go to the Task Plane and under the Toolbox, the new folder icon is grayed out. I can right click on a subfolder of a custom standard and I can add a new folder, but here is the catch. I can't rename it so it is stuck with New Folder as a name. Then when I go to add anything to it, it doesn't show up in the folder listing in the Add to Library dialog boxes. Then if I go to delete it, I get an error saying that it can't find the folder and it disappears.

During this entire sequence, I can stop and open Windows Explorer and the folder is there and renamed to what I want the folder to be. Anyone have any advice?

Btw...my user has the following access to the folder tree & the folder is NOT set to ReadOnly

Company Standard
-Purchased Components
--Bearings
--Connectors
--etc.

Purchased Components folder (Windows Explorer settings)
Full Control - Deny
Modify - Allow
Read & Execute - Allow
List Folder Content - Allow
Read - Allow
Write - Allow
Special Permissions - Deny
