Visual Studio 2005 Standard Hangs with 50% CPU time.

I have a 2 form project in VS2005 that now hangs whenever I try to do
anything with the second form. This seems to have started when I added some
SQL tables from a Pervasive v.9 database using the Pervasive ODBC driver.

The devenv.exe process hangs and will not respond with about 50% cpu usage
and about 100 megs of memory used.

I am running it on an Athlon 64 bit dual core with 32 bit Windows XP pro. I
have 2 megs of memory so I don't think that's a problem. This same app also
happens on a Pentium D system so I doubt the PC is a problem either.

I googled "Visual Studio 2005 hangs" and I got back quite a few bug reports.

Otherwise the debug .exe of the last good build of the program runs OK but
now I can't get back into it to make changes.

Is there anything I can do configuration wise to stop some of the background
features of VS2005 to work around this problem?

Thanks

Have you installed SP-1 for Visual Studio?

I don't see anything weird in there. The only other thing you could try
that I saw recommended somewhere recently is to turn off your paging file.
I did that, and it *did* speed up the startup of Visual Studio (much to my
surprise). I have 2GB of memory.

What if you remove the Pervasive database -- does the IDE respond quickly
again?
