Visual Studio .NET 2005 problem

Hi,

I have used VS.NET 2005 for about 2 weeks now. Yesterday everything
started going extremly slow. Opening a project takes about 30 secunds
or more, and building a project takes even more time (this project took
3 secunds to build before).

When VS.NET 2005 is open, the harddrive read/writes all the time.

Does anybody have a soulution to my problem?

Try to find out why there is constant disk activity, this is probably the
reason for the slowdown.
Things to look at are how much system memory do you have available and how
much memory is taken by vstudio (devenv.exe).
Do you see any disk activity when you run VS without any project open?

I found a solution myself. :-)

This is what I did:

Deleted this key from the registry
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\ 8.0

and the deleted these files
C:\Documents and Settings\Current User\Application
Data\Microsoft\VisualStudio\8.0

Now everything is back to normal.

Waw, why the hell did you do this, you actually destroyed all your VS
settings, and IMO it was not the cause of your problem.

I know I destroyed all my settings, but that is a little price to pay
if VS.NET 2005 runs normal again. And this is a much better way to fix
the problem than reinstalling everything.

If you have a better solution, I'm happy to try that next time it
happends.

But as I told you, your problem is not related to the settings, unless
regedit is one of your favorite tools and you screwed your settings before.
For a better solution, I replied that you should try to find out why there
is constant disk IO when vs runs.
