It all started this morning when I tried to open a C# solution I'm working on for quite some time now. Right after loading the solution I got the error: "vhost.exe has stopped working". Since then I've been trying to figure out what was going on. I started to uninstall things, like resharper and other add-ons, but the problem persisted. The next thing I did was to repair VS2008 but it didn't work either, then I completely removed and reinstalled it but nothing changed. I've even reinstalled the .Net Framework again but to no avail. At this time of the night, and having almost wiped my hard disk from games, applications, services and whatnot, it keeps crashing with the message "xxx has stopped working". The only thing I've found is that only .NET applications (as in managed) seems to be affected by this problem.
Any ideas of what could be causing this?
You guys are my only hope before I have to give up and reinstall everything from scratch (and rolling back to XP).
Note: I've also been reading info from logs and system events looking for detailed information but everything was too "low level". Not a single reference to missing files nor corrupted data.
Note: I forgot to mention that applications crash outside the VS2008 IDE also so I don't think it has nothing to do with it (at first glance).
