I have a laptop (1.5 yrs old, Intel Core 2, 3G memory, NVidia graphic card, Windows XP Pro) that I use Visual Studio Professional. VS2010 is installed in C: drive where it has 92GB and has a free space of 50GB.
VS2010 has been slow 1. When switching from other tasks, the UI simply freezes for > 1 minute before it responses to the mouse click; 2. Sometimes it takes a couple of seconds even when I switch to another tab/file before the UI responds; 3. Takes >2 min to build even a small solution (with a dozen projects) that usually takes <1 in Blend. The task manager shows VS usually takes 200MB - 330MB of memory, which is on top of the list, with browser (Chrome or Firefox) in the 2nd place taking around 150MB.
I've tried to reset VS2010 settings and it doesn't seem to take any effect. Any leads are appreciated!
