The reason why Vista is unable to open the properties,delete, or move the file is mainly because Vista is having trouble rebuilding the thumbnails/icons/filters/Description/preview images of the certain folder/files. (not related to computer specs/indexing/)

In order to solve the problem, here is a couple of ways.
Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Folder Options
General Tab--->Task---Use Window Classic Folders
(If this still haven't fix the problem, then do the followering)
Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Folder Options
View Tab--->uncheck---> display Icon/Thumbnails
View Tab--->uncheck---> Show __(all 4 of the show drive letter/etc)
View Tab--->check---> Always show icons, never thumbnails

This should work. Happened on both my toshiba laptops and both fixed
